Police FC Coach Abdallah Mubiru was left disappointed after his team dropped two points away to The Saints and rued missed chances.

The Cops were held to a 1-1 draw by The Saints in Matugga in a game they came from a goal down to draw level through substitute Anthony Bongole.

“Depending on the pitch and weather, I don’t think the boys played bad,” he said. “But we should have won it with the many chances created. It’s disappointing to lose points in such a manner,” he added.

A heavy downpour prior to the game had a devastating effect on the already bad pitch but Police had opportunities put to waste.

Goal scorer Bongole, the club’s top marksman Hood Kaweesa and William Wadri missed clear cut chances to win the game for the visitors while Hakim Ssenkumba hit the post.

Towards the final whistle, the Cops thought they had nicked the win but Martin Mpuuga would be winner off a corner by Ssenkumba was disallowed with the referee blowing the final whistle.

I don’t why it didn’t count. It was a clear goal but that’s football but the referee said the ball hit the back of the net after final whistle had gone.

10th on the log at the moment with 24 points after 20 games, Police’s next game is on Friday at their new home, Namboole stadium against Bul FC.
