Police FC head coach Abdallah Mubiru has urged his players to improve on their performance display in order to perfectly match their results.
The Cops host Busoga United on Tuesday at the MTN Omondi Stadium, Lugogo and despite having a vibrant start to the season, Mubiru is not quite pleased with how his side is performing.
“As a team we still have a lot to improve in terms of performance, we’re really not yet there,” Mubiru told Football256.
“However much we want to get the results in every game, but at Police how we play also matters a lot.”
“We need to improve on our transitions because we’re a little bit slow in transmitting from situation to another.”
“Our pressing is also still wanting and we’re also not very swift on our counter attacks so basically we need to improve on our performance,” he added.
Police have collected seven points from a possible nine and have kept three clean sheets from their opening three games.
They come up against Busoga United who is in complete shambles with administrative struggles at the brink of drowning the club, and Mubiru feels that his team is in a better shape to avenge for their defeats against Busoga last season.
“The biggest element of results is luck, a team may do little but at the end of the day take the results but this time around we want to out compete them at both performance and results,” Mubiru said.
Police come into Tuesday’s game unbeaten so far after drawing once against Wakiso Giants and winning twice against newbies MYDA FC and Kitara FC.
The home side will be led by striker Ben Ocen who bagged a hat-trick in 5-0 thumping of MYDA on Saturday and could welcome back captain Tony Mawejje from injury.
Busoga United have lost two of their three games against UPDF FC and BUL FC but drew against Kyetume FC. They will look up to youngster Isma Mugulusi’s creativity.
Police lie third with seven points on the 16-team log whereas Busoga is one spot above the red zone in 13th place on just a single point.
