If there is anything Maroons together with all the other sides involved in the relegation battle is something telling them, surviving the drop is still a big possibility.

And the Luzira based side are getting that from their head coach Robert Sekweyama who continues to be optimistic that his side will survive relegation this season despite the fact that they are just one position and six points away from relegation shambles.

“We are still hopeful of surviving relegation because it is possible, we are looking at getting more points from our remaining games as we are looking forward at increasing our survival chances,” Sekweyama said after his side’s two all draw with Police FC on Wednesday.

“The game wasn’t good for us, our opponents outplayed us, we got a point which is not bad though it’s not enough according to the position we are in on the table.”

“The boys played poorly on the day but we hope to improve in our next games,” he added.

Police scored through Juma Balinya before Eddy Kapampa equalized for Maroons a minute to the break, three minutes into the second half, Ruben Kimera restored Police’s lead before Sylvester Okello levelled the game for Maroons again.

The draw left Maroons 13th on the 16 team log with 26 points with only five games to go. The last three teams will be relegated to StarTimes Big League at the end of the season.
