Police FC coach Simon Mugerwa was not contented with his team’s overall display but was happy with the 2-0 win over Kaaro Karungi as they regained the lead in the betPawa FUFA Big League.
The Cops were ahead as early as the ninth minute when Isaac Ogwang skillfully picked Samuel Kayongo’s pass before lifting it over the keeper for the goal.
The visitors piled pressure into the early minutes of the second half forcing coach Mugerwa to withdraw Duncan Sseninde for Reagan Male and Isac Ogwang for experienced Herman Wasswa.
The change worked miracles as Wasswa pounced on another of Kayongo’s passes before burying the ball in the first minute of added time.
The goal left a smile on Mugerwa’s face as the team survived dropping points in another consecutive match.
“Kaaro Karungi was very competitive but the boys were very resolute as we returned to winning ways,” Mugerwa said.
He explained: “We didn’t have a good display especially in the midfield where they won most of the one-on-one battles but the result is good enough for us.
“They were very mobile in the first 20 minutes of the second half forcing us to make some changes that resulted in the second goal.”
Police lead the 15-team table with 13 points, three and four ahead of Blacks Power and Calvary after five outings.
