Abdallah Mubiru feels it was two points lost and not one gained following his side’s 1-1 with giants SC Villa at Namboole.

The visitors took the lead inside 30 minutes through Godfrey Lwesibawa strike but substitute Hood Kaweesa levelled matters with quarter of the game to play.

“I think we deserved more than a point,” said Mubiru. “But there are lots of positives to take from the game,” he added.

One, we came from a goal down against a giant opponent, dominated them especially the second half and even forced them into time wasting tactics.

The Cops started slow and could have easily fallen behind by more than a single first half goal and Mubiru had this to explain why.

This was our first game of the season (physically) and our opponents had already played one before. We were a little nervous at the start.

Besides, Mubiru’s side didn’t defend well despite the dominance but what mattered to the gaffer is that the team didn’t create as many chances.

Defensively, we lacked as unit but my worry is that we didn’t create a lot of chances. But overall, there is room for improvement and we shall build on this.

Police stay top of the standings with four points, same as SC Villa, Onduparaka, Vipers and Kirinya Jinja SS.

They return to action next week with a duel against Proline at Namboole.
