Police FC coach Abdullah Mubiru has said that his side had to do everything in their own means to bounce back following a recent poor run of games that was highlighted by a 4-1 loss to Nyamityobora.
Mubiru was speaking after the team’s convincing 2-0 away win against Express FC in a StarTimes Uganda Premier League encounter at Betway Muteesa II Stadium in Wankulukuku.
We had to bounce back, and it was importantly in our pursue for top positions,” started Coach Abdullah.
The morale was done and we hope that this is the first of our many wins to come. The boys defended well and also played as a team.”
It feels good to win against a big team like Express and more importantly, with a clean sheet.”
Juma Balinya gave Police the advantage before the break when he bundled home Pius Kaggwa’s delivery. Johnson Odong hammered the final nail into Express FC’s coffin before Referee Tulu Muzamir ended the affair.
The coach commended his new centre back pairing of John Ssentume and Edgar Bwogi Sharp. The pair replaced Paul Willa (or Ibrahim Kibumba) and Arafat Galiwango at the heart of defence.
This was Police’s first league victory in 2019 – The club had lost against KCCA and Nyamityobora with a Villa draw in between.
The victory elevated Police FC to seventh place with 24 points from 17 games. Next for the Peace Keepers is a home game against Ndejje University before visiting Kirinya Jinja SS.
