There will be no room for error when Police host resurgent Tooro United as the league resumes following the Stanbic Uganda Cup.
The Cops are yet to win a game since the start of the second round and aware of the threat posed by Tooro United who have enjoyed a good start to the second half of the season.
Unlike Police, Tooro United have lost none of their three outings so far winning once and drawing the other.
In the process, they have collected one more point than they managed in the entire first round.
Abdallah Mubiru expects a tough encounter but admits his team have the quality to get all three points.
“They (Tooro United) on form and playing well,” said Mubiru. “On the other hand, we have not a won any game in the second round but this is one we must win to improve our fighting chance,” he added.
His captain, Tonny Mawejje also feels its high time they won a game of football in the league if they are to climb to a better place on the table.
“We need to start winning games and as players, we are all motivated to do so starting with the game tomorrow (Tuesday),” said Mawejje. “The onus is on us to lift the team high up the table to a respectable position,” he added.
The hosts who won the reverse fixture 3-1 at Buhinga will hope their talisman Juma Balinya maintains his current form in which he has scored in three of the past three games.
Former Tooro United forward Marvin Oshaba will be eager to put one against his former employers who have former SC Villa players Muhammad Ssenoga and Musa Doka to look to for inspiration.
Police have won the last three home meetings and four in general including the reverse fixture.
