URA coach Sam Ssimbwa has strong convictions his side could go all the way in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League (SUPL) this season.

The four-time league champions started this season on wrong footing, drawing two games before picking themselves up to go on a three-match winning run.

The three victories came against Bul, SC Villa and KCCA, seeing the league break off for Chan with URA second on the log with 11 points from five matches.

Ssimbwa is happy with how they have gone about their business, but the 53-year-old wants more.

“Of course it is early days. We shall begin to see, for example, if UPDF (top of the table) can still compete at that level at 10 to 15 games,” Ssimbwa told NTV Press Box on Monday night.

“Can we win the title? Of course I have my personal targets and URA as a club also have targets.

“And our collective target is to win the league and that is what we are going for.

“We are four title condensers,” reaffirmed Ssimbwa, “Us (URA), KCCA, Vipers and Express.

“KCCA have the players and recruit well, same as Vipers. Express also have recruited well and coach Bbosa (Wasswa) is now experienced enough to challenge for the title.”

URA’s last league title came in the 2011 season, only finishing runners-up in 2013.

Ssimbwa has the experience to win the league having led Express to victory in 2012. URA next face Express.
