Police FC spent a very undesirable long night in West Nile after enduring a very long day at the AbaBet Greenlight Stadium in Arua where they intriguingly lost to Onduparaka in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League on Saturday.
A few kilometres after their Arua departure in Wadelai in Pakwach District, the Police bus carrying players and officials had a serious mechanical problem that could not let the team go on with their journey.
The Police team, on top of all their current problems also literally slept outside after losing to Onduparaka in Arua.
The mechanic who was sent from Kampala to settle the situation on Sunday morning did not run to their rescue as early as they would have wished, he opted to first attend to another Police lorry that had broken down in Gulu.
The whole journey for the Cops in the league has generally been so rough so far. They, however, after losing the first five games of the season withstood a close to 500km road trip with the hope of improving their awful league record.
As bad luck would have it, they went on to lose 1-0 to the Caterpillars in a manner they were not convinced with, grumbling of a lot of irregularities
The Cops then, with no other alternative had to embark on another long journey back home as they spent the night in their bus seats in the middle of nowhere.
It is not clear when they will be rescued from their misery but an alternative transport means but have their bus fixed in time.
If rescued, the Cops would bear with like ten hours on the road to be assured of being back home before the sun set on Sunday.
That way, they would logically have some time to rest a bit at home, in time to resume preparations for another league encounter in less than a week, on Friday, November 26 against Mbarara City.
