Police Football Club coach Abdallah Mubiru has appreciated the fighting spirit his players exhibited in the 2-2 draw with SC Villa at the Masaka Recreational stadium.

The footballing cops were 2-0 down heading to the final 25 minutes thanks to goals Emma Okwi and Umar Kasumba.

In a typical fighting mode, Rahmat Senfuka and Anthony Bongole scored in quick succession to bring the game level.

The former Proline, KCCA and Vipers head coach expressed delight to the media moments after the final whistle in Masaka.

I thank the players for this fighting spirit. We were 2 goals down but we did not give up. We still worked hard and had the belief as well.

Although the ground made it too difficult for us to easily pass the ball, we still tried.

Ocen factor:

Mubiru singled out the introduction of senior player and team skipper Ben Ocen in the second half that catalyzed their performance.

Ocen is our experienced player and captain. When he came on, definitely, there was a complete change of mindset and play. He did well on the day.

Focus for next games

Quickly, Mubiru would wish to pick the key positives from the SC Villa game as learning case studies and amend the faults for improved performances for the club.

The game against SC Villa is now behind us. We need to prepare for the next games. The league is still on and we have the Uganda Cup quarter final clash against KCCA at Namboole in the next 48 hours.

The Uganda Cup quarter final clash between Police and KCCA shall come on Sunday, 30th April 2017 at Nelson Mandela National stadium
