Police FC side are yet to register a win in the current edition of the Startimes Uganda Premier League UPL.
Police FC have had two good seasons under their head coach Abdallah Mubiru finishing in decent positions. However, right from their competitive fixture against Vipers SC in the Stanbic Uganda Cup, they have struggled to replicate their winning form.
Police FC have lost to SC Vipers (0-2), Bul FC (1-2), Wakiso Giants (0-1) and Express FC (1-2). It is a concern to a size that has been outstandingly competitive under their current head coach Abdallah Mubiru.
The team is not themselves. Fixtures against Police FC for teams in the UPL were done after the referee blew the final whistle.
Abdallah Mubiru’s side are really having an awfully terrible time with the rate at which they are easily letting the opposition get away with the games. They can’t afford to continue to drop points that they should have had themselves picking up.
Vipers SC and Express FC have the army to bring them down given the amount of money they have at their disposal to lure top players. Police FC do not have the deeper pockets as their rivals they have lost to.
However, this can not be said when it comes to the posts dropped against Bul FC and Wakiso Giants. No. Abdallah Mubiru admitted his side are low on confidence but as their coach, he must find a way out of the danger he puts himself in.
“We are not focusing on Wakiso Giants FC, the biggest challenge we are facing is our performance. We need to concentrate on our performance and confidence of players with the ball and the results will come,” Abdallah Mubiru said ahead of his team’s game against Wakiso Giants.
Wakiso Giants were whitewashed by Vipers SC and KCCA FC in the league and had their coach Douglas Bamweyenea throw in the towel after embarrassing results. Only a few days, they fixed up their house and collected all three points against Police FC!
Abdallah Mubiru has had to shuffle his team to try and arrest the mess his team have found themselves in at the start of the Uganda Premier League. He promised ahead of the fixture against Bul FC but still went on to walk away empty.
“We are targeting maximum points against Bul FC tomorrow. We are ready to make changes and hopefully we have all the players whom we didn’t have last time because of licence issues.”
“At the start of the season it’s everyone’s dream to win something at the end and this would be a cover up for missing the league title. Everyone at the club is very prepared, especially the players,” Abdallah Mubiru said before the Stanbic Uganda Cup clash with Vipers SC.
Abdallah Mubiru will have to lift the spirit in his camp to think about winning something with a club that believes in his ideas. Vipers SC edged him to go on to win the Stanbic Uganda Cup.
His team is not creating and scoring enough despite acquiring the services of Juma Balinya from KCCA FC. Balinya had his name on the scoresheet in the loss to Express FC. But his goal will give Abdallah Mubiru something to cheer about.
The former Cranes coach has problems at the back end of his set up with the team conceding goals in every of the games they have played in the Uganda Premier League.
The Uganda Premier League title continues to look a distant dream for him given the poor start that has his team stuck at the bottom.
Wakiso Giants head coach Douglas Bamweyena resigned after overseeing the club’s disastrous games against Vipers SC and KCCA FC. Can Abdallah Mubiru call time on his spell as Police FC coach despite the team’s board headed by Asan Kasingye quiet about the situation of the club.
