URA head coach David Obua says his side was unlucky in the game they lost 2-0 against Vipers in the Uganda Premier League on Saturday.

Despite falling to Vipers 2-0, the Tax Collectors had a great game weaving in a number of passes but failed to take away their chances in front of goal.

In the post-match conference, Obua stated that the game could easily go either way though they will now shift focus to the next opponent.

“We were unlucky yet again, not to go ahead of this one too. The game should have gone either way,” Obua stated before adding.

“I am always telling the boys, to be lucky you have to work harder than the opponent. These guys (Vipers) were in the back kicking balls. They’re the champions, they've got more quality players and you would expect that they should have played a better game than us,” he added.

“Generally am happy with the boys. We didn’t change our style of play, regardless of what pressure that was surrounding us, we kept on playing. We won't give up and we shall come back again.”

The gaffer also commended the officiating for being fair and giving the game the required attention thus blaming the loss on the opposition’s lack of concentration.

The winless run for URA extends to four games across all competitions. They lie eighth on the log with 31 points after 22 games.

Next on the log, URA will visit Express on Saturday, April 6 at Muteesa II Stadium in Wankulukuku.
