Police FC forward Johnson Odong insists that the club have a big chance of lifting at least one trophy this season.
The Cops are still in search of their first major trophy since winning the CECAFA Club Championship in 2006, and despite a strong start to the season, they have had a significant drop in the title race.
And as they prepare for the return leg of their Stanbic Uganda Cup Round of 32 encounter away to Calvary FC at the Aba Bet stadium in Arua, Odong believes the Uganda Cup may provide the best chance for the club to bag some silverware.
“You can feel it within the whole group that we want to win something, and of course it is an objective that we set for ourselves at the start of the season,” Odong told Football256.
“I am not saying that it is going to be easy for us, but we know we have the quality within the team and the belief to fight and win a trophy at the end of the season.”
“Obviously we have the upper hand to progress to the next stage in the Uganda Cup and we know that is one competition we can win if we give it our best shot.”
“The goal however is to take it game by game and the period between now and the end of the season is very crucial because we have a clear idea of what we need and where,” he added.
Police carry a comfortable 5-0 advantage in the encounter ahead of the return leg with Odong’s penalty inside the opening 10 minutes setting the Cops on their trail to victory on Monday.
Meanwhile, Abdallah Mubiru’s side has seen their chances of a first league title since 2005 slip away with the club now eight points off joint leaders Vipers and URA FC.
Key to Police’s hopes of lifting a trophy this season are the performances of Odong who looked to have failed to leave up to rigors of top flight football since joining the club in 2018.
The forward has been eye-catching and has made 11 goal involvements in all competitions since his return from a COVID-19 infection in February.
