Rahmat Ssenfuka claims Police wanted to win more than Vipers following their 2-0 victory over Jorge Miguel Da Costa Duarte’s men on Friday at the Mandela National Stadium, Namboole.
The midfielder captained his side on Friday as they secured a crucial victory to end an unwanted run of six games without seeing victory in the league, a run that included four defeats.
Hakim Ssenkumba scored the two important goals from the penalty spot to brighten their chances of surviving relegation this term, and Ssenfuka says they wanted the three points more than their opponents.
“We badly needed this win,” Ssenfuka said after the game. “We have been struggling with injuries hence struggling to post good results in the league. We had not won in a long time so we wanted to win more than Vipers.
“This win is very important to us. We hope we continue like this since we are still fighting for survival. We still have six games to the end of the season. We hope we can win our next three games,” he added.
The win moved Police to the tenth position in the league. Now with 28 points, three points separate them from the red line.
Police face Bright Stars next in the league on Tuesday next week.
