Following a painful exit from the Uganda Cup, Police FC coach Abdallah Mubiru now sets eyes of keeping the team in the league.

The Cops suffered a heartbreak in the Cup quarter finals with a 1-0 loss to KCCA in extra time in which Rahmat Ssenfuka missed a penalty that would have kept the teams level.

“It was painful to lose in the manner we did,” a dejected Mubiru told Kawowo Sports. “But that’s now behind us,” he added.

All the attention now turns to keeping our place in the division and the boys are aware of that.

9th on the log with 30 points, Police will be safe if they can pick at least four points in the remaining three games, of which only one is away from home.

The 2005 league champions rallied to earn a point against title chasing SC Villa in their last league fixture which Mubiru described as ‘very important’.

That was a very important point off a giant and we hope it will be imperative in our target.

Police doesn’t return to action until May 9 when they host URA, a week later, they play JMC Hippos away from home and then end their campaign with a home tie against fellow relegation candidates Lweza on May 19.
