URA coach David Obua wants his side build on the win away to Gaddafi when they host relegation fighting UPDF at the Mehta Grounds in Lugazi.
URA beat the Jinja based army side 1-0 to get their first away win and playing at home against a side second from bottom, they will be favourites.
However, Obua is aware of what to expect when playing against a side fight for their life.
“It’s a tricky game against a side that wants to get each and every point available,” said Obua. “But we are in good shape and want to build on our first win,” he added.
“I am always positive and go into every game aiming for nothing but maximum points.”

Ivan Ahimbisibwe and Ibrahim Wamanah face their former pay masters.
Meanwhile, UPDF come into the game on the back of a 3-0 defeat at home to Kitara and Pius Ngabo will want a quick reaction from his charges.
The reverse fixture between these two sides ended in a goalless draw.
