Police FC head coach Abdallah Mubiru has insisted his charges are focused on improving per game and not getting carried away with their current league position.
The Cops are currently second on the Ugandan Premier League table with 13 points from the six matches they have played.
On Friday, they defeated Kyetume 3-1 to continue with their good run this season after last campaign’s struggles.
Despite their good performance, the tactician states their attention is not on their position on the table.
“We are not focussing on where we stand on the table at the moment,” Mubiru said as quoted by Football256.
“Being at the top is something that is at the back of our minds because our focus should be on improving with every game we play. We are not resting just yet, we have to plan for our next game and keep the focus on our next opponents because the race is just taking shape.”
Despite all the players giving their best, Mubiru reserved special praise for striker Johnson Odong’ who had a hand on two goals.
“Credit goes to the players for the performance and the result especially given the nature of the pitch after the downpour. The players had to dig deep with the amount of water on the pitch due to the rain and I am happy they soldiered on amidst the challenge.
“I think they were brilliant out there today. Muluuli showed what he can bring to the team putting up such a performance after training with us for just a week.
“And for Odong, we have been waiting for such performances for two years now and we hope that this is the spark for him to put up more consistent performances like that.”
