Police FC picked their first point of the season with a goalless draw against Mbarara City FC on matchday three of the StarTimes Uganda Premier League.

The Peace Keepers opted to host the game at Mandela national stadium in Namboole after Wakissha was not available due to other engagements.

Police also played without head coach Abdallah Mubiru who is with Uganda Cranes ahead of Kenya friendly in Kasarani.

The side were docked three points on matchday one and lost the game by forfeiture after failing to turn up against Onduparaka at Luzira, as the club had attended EAPCCO games.

Police lost 2-0 to BUL FC on matchday two on Wednesday. The side has now collected -2 points.

Police entered the game in search for three points but the visitors proved a hard nut to crack.

In a balanced game, Mbarara also had their moments and almost took an early lead but Ibrahim Orit’s shot from Paul Mucureezi’s pass was cleared by Joseph Sentume on the line.

Brian Aheebwa had a free header but it went far and wide.
