Abdallah Mubiru was delighted with his players’ commitment as Police FC came from a goal down to beat giants Vipers 2-1 at Namboole.
A brace from Hood Kaweesa in the space of five minutes handed the Cops a deserved win over the Venoms to dislodge Miguel Da Costa’s charges from the summit.
“First and foremost, commitment,” Mubiru told reporters when asked where his side won the game. “We were committed to winning not just playing,” he added.
Even at the moment we conceded the goal, we kept on pushing for a goal.
The former Vipers SC tactician withdrew midfielders Gift Ali Abubaker and Albert Mugisa a couple of minutes into the second half after an abysmal show.
But he instead congratulated Vipers for neutralizing the threat and denying them opportunity to use the ball well.
First of all, we congratulate them (Vipers) because they tried to neutralize our game most especially the first half when they out marked our midfielders and we couldn’t use the ball well.
The 2005 league champions moved top of the league with maximum points and from the look of things, they are likely to be in the title mix but Mubiru thinks otherwise.
Our target is clear and remains clear, we target to be competitive. Whatever teams we play against, we try to compete against the opponents we are playing.
We will keep on competing until the end of the league. We are not thinking about winning the league at the moment but winning games.
Police have won 3, lost once and drawn as many league games this season and sit top with 10 points.
