Police FC recorded their six victory in emphatic style after they edged Kirinya Jinja SS 3-2 in an entertaining StarTimes Uganda Premier League game played on Sunday afternoon at the StarTimes stadium Lugogo.
The Cops started brightly with striker Johnson Odongo opening his account after four minutes after Kirinya lost possession in their own penalty area and he took advantage.
The forward with blistering pace again took advantage of Kirinya’s pathetic defending adding another in the 34th minute with the home side bossing the entire first period.
After recess, the tide changed in Kirinya’s favour, Police got comfortable from the start, a situation Kirinya took advantage of.
First Dan Sewava nodded home to make it 2-1 in the 66th minute, seven minutes later Faizal Muwawu made it 2-2 after Police poorly defended.
It’s after the equalizer that Police switched back on, and indeed with three minutes left.
Andrew Isiagi crossed in from the right and his cross was poorly delt with finding a free Ashraf Mugume who smacked it home to make it 3-2 sending the Police bench into wild celebrations.
The loss was down to school boy defending according to Kirinya Jinja SS coach Charles Ayeikho.
“We lost because our defense poorly defended the first two goals, we actually gifted Police and after that it was game down” a visibly disappointed Ayeikho lamented in a post match interview with www.football-256.com.
The victory takes Abdullah Mubiru’s side three spots up to sixth on 20 points two ahead of 10th placed Kirinya who are on 18 points.
