Police FC head coach Abdallah Mubiru claims that their victory against Tooro United is a relief for the Cops as they intensify their relegation battle.
Mubiru and his charges returned to winning ways by beating bottom-placed Tooro United 4-2 in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League game played at the Phillip Omondi Stadium in Lugogo.
Juma Balinnya, Tonny Mawejje, Marvin Oshaba and Herman Wasswa scored once each to hand the Cops three points while Ronald Magwali and Hussein Mwanje netted for the visitors.
According to Mubiru, Tuesday’s victory came as a relief to his side.
“Some good effort from the players whereby everyone tried to give in effort,” Mubiru said after the game before adding.
“It’s good we were able to get the results, it was very important for us to win today’s game, it gives us a relief for the mean time in our struggle to avoid relegation,” he added.
However, Mubiru warned his players against reckless and careless defending that may cost them points going forward.
“We are a bit careless and that recklessness may cost us three points because we lost the ball easily and we were always reluctant.”
“But overall, good effort, good result, I think we need to celebrate it,” he further noted.
Tuesday’s win left Police FC 10th on the log with 21 points while Tooro is still on the bottom of the log with nine points from 19 games played so far.
