At this stage last season, Police FC had conceded 12 goals and had only scored five, today they have let in just three (the least) and have bagged in 13 on the other side of the field.
Only Vipers at 17 have scored more goals than the Abdallah Mubiru coached side.
That good run has fetched those four wins, one draw, and one loss after just six games, in second position.
They are one point behind log leaders Vipers who have collected 14 points the difference between then and now goes back to their recruitment policy.
“I want to attribute that to who the whole team because we defend as a team, but most specific to the defence and goalkeeping department,” Mubiru told Football256.
“We needed to make some specific signings and those additions we made have boosted us a lot”
“And you can see that we are no longer reckless, we have more discipline, commitment, organized and serious,” Mubiru added.
Police released Davies Mutebi who has pretty much their match on many occasions, but at the same time conceded avoidable goals.
In came Thomas Ikara from Mbarara City and Derrick Ochan from Vipers, two hungry lads who have pushed each other in training but the former has taken the nod as the ultimate number one.
Eric Senjobe came for the departed Arafat Galiwango, while central defender Hassan Mahmoud joined from Onduparaka.
Mahmoud and Henry Katongole are forging a partnership that is yielding results. vice-captain Dennis Rukundo continues to man their right side of the defense.
The team was also boosted by the leadership presence of Tony mawejje who has come in more as a coach-player for them on the field.
Mawejje might not have the lungs any more but the younger breed of Yusuf Ssozi and Frank ‘Gaza’ Tumwesigye do compliment him a lot
