LUGOGO – Tooro United will be seeking to end their current winless run when they travel to Logogo to face a relatively in form Police side at the StarTimes Stadium.
Wasswa Bbosa’s Tooro Side have not won any of their last four League games and keep on slipping next to the relegation zone.
They currently sit 12th having lost to Express and Kirinya and then endured stalemates with both Onduparaka and Paidah in their last four games.
With only a single victory since the start of the season, the Fort Portal side will no doubt be hoping they can take care of Police.
However, the hosts are currently enjoying a three game unbeaten run having initially lost all their first three at the start of the season.
The Cops were disappointed not to make it three victories in three last time out when they conceded an injury time Solomon Walusimbi equalizer to draw 1-1 with Maroons on Sunday.
Aside from the draw, Abdallah Mubiru’s side have defeated Ndejje University and Nyamityobora to improve to as far as 10th having spent the first three weeks in the relegation zone.
What they are saying:
Abdallah Mubiru, Police FC head coach.
“It is not going to ba an easy game as they are a very good side.
“Yes we are on a three game unbeaten run but it doesn’t matter once the game starts.
“We will try our best to get the best possible result.
Wasswa Bbosa, Tooro United head coach.
“We want to rectify our situation as soon as possible.
“Police is a good side with a good coach but we need the points.
This is Police and Tooro United’s 11th meeting since 2014.
In the first 10, Police have won 4, Tooro 5 and one draw.
In the five games away to Police, Tooro have lost only once since 2014 (W3 D1).
In the reverse fixture last season, Abdallah Mubiru’s side took the honours thanks to a 1-0 victory.
The Cops go into the game having won only two of their first six league games (D1 L3).
At home, they have not won any of their last four games dating back to last season (D2 L2).
For Tooro, they have won only one of their last seven league matches going back to last season (D3 L3).
Away from home, Bbosa’s side have won only two of their last 15 games (D2 L9).
