Following a dip in his side’s form, Police FC Coach Abdallah Mubiru has described the international break as timely as he seeks to find solutions to his side’s problems.

The Cops were on Tuesday subjected to a second league defeat in succession as they lost 4-3 to Express FC away from home to drop to 11th on the 16 tea log with 24 points.

The Uganda Premier League takes a break till March 28 as the Cranes prepare to face off against Kenya in an international friendly.

“It couldn’t come at a better time,” said Mubiru. “It gives us chance to find solutions to a blip that we have suffered in the last four games and hopefully, we are better a side when we return to action,” he added.

Despite losing the thriller against Express, Mubiru whose side at one time were 3-0 and 4-1 down picked positives from the defeat.

I liked the attitude and the character of my players. They never gave up and deserved at least a point from the game but that’s football.

Since hiring the former Proline, KCCA and Vipers tactician, Police have moved up the log from the relegation zone and also reached the Round of 16 of the Uganda Cup where they face lower tier side, Kyetume F.C.

Their next league game is a home tie against reigning champions and second placed KCCA at Namboole on Tuesday March 28.
