URA captain Jimmy Kulaba claims the tax collectors wanted victory more than their opponents Sadolin Paints, propelling the 2006 league champions to a 1-0 triumph on Tuesday at the Mandela National Stadium, Nambole.

The four-time league winners claimed only their second win against the Jinja outfit as they made it six wins for them this season.

Rwandan striker, Bokota Labama Kamana scored the lone goal in the dying minutes of the game to hand his side all the three points.

“It was not an easy game,” Kulaba told Kawowo Sports after the game.

“Sadolin always gives us problems and it was no different today, but I think the difference today was we wanted the win more than them.

“You could tell from the start that the desire was there. We were very composed and determined today. We wanted to win especially against them. They always give us hard time.

“I think when the game was approaching its end, they started defending deeply. They were ready to settle for a draw. As for us, we kept pushing and going forward till we found that goal. We were very persistent and it paid off.”

Victory was URA’s first against Sadolin since 2015. The win left them fifth in the league with 30 points.
