Police FC 1-2 Vipers
(StarTimes Stadium, Lugogo)
Police FC coach Abdullah Mubiru was angry about his side’s recklessness in their loss to Vipers SC.
The Venoms managed to pick maximum points – winning 2-1 – away to Police in a league game played at StarTimes Stadium in Lugogo.
Dan Sserunkuma bundled home the opener from close range after a beautiful low assist from Tito Okello before Rahmat Ssenfuka doubled the advantage in the second half with a nice finish from Duncan Sseninde’s assist.
Basani Safi brought one back for the Peace Keepers, squeezing an effort past Vipers goalkeeper Derrick Ochan at near post.
“Its a disappointing result,” started a hard done by Mubiru who was speaking to the few journalists at Lugogo after the game. because
“We had set our target of finishing among the top five but its now an achievement I can no longer fulfil.
“We wasted so many chances, unlike our opponents. We had so many scoring opportunities which we failed to bury. The boys did not do as expected. The game is played even when we lose possession but we didn’t show the need for the ball.”
Ivan Bukenya came close to levelling matters after Sserunkuma’s opener but his attempt was kept out. Juma Balinya shot wide before fluffing another shot over the bar.
Police remain ninth with 37 points and will face URA FC on matchday 29 at Lugogo.
Vipers on the hand consolidates themselves in second place with 53 points, seven below champions-elect KCCA FC with two games to go.
The only black spot in the game saw Vipers forward Tito Okello stretchered off before he was rushed to a hospital via an Ambulance. The player fell down – feeling twists in the stomach – inside the first half after a failed attempt to cross the ball from the right flank.
