One certainty in any Azam Uganda Premier league season is that the three bottom placed clubs will be relegated to the Big League. Any team struggling to reach at least the 35 point mark that supposedly ensures safety ( Proline have done) faces a tense final few games that are destined to end in tears for their supporters, players and management, With the replacements already confirmed after Mbarara city joined Maroons and Masavu on Sunday 7th, May 2017, its inevitable that some 3 teams have to create room for them.
With JMC Hippos already having confirmed relegation, SWIFT SPORTS analysts have managed to put all the teams that are liable for possible relegation on the scale.
At the start of the second round, Coach Abdallah Mubiru was assigned to save Police FC’s season. He found the 2005 champions hoovering above the drop zone with 14 points. He has collected 16 points but has only 7 points in the last 9 matches.
Just like The Saints, Police have 30 points but are disadvantaged by their goal difference, the second worst in the league and it might be an added advantage to their close competitors.
The last 3 matches see them travel to Lugazi to face URA this week, then visit JMC before ending the season at Namboole with a do-or-die match against Lweza FC.
The Cops have a lot of experienced players and hope to rely on Michael Birungi, William Wadri, Hood Kaweesa, Rahmat Ssenfuka, Anthony Bongole, Ssaka Mpima and Martin Mpuuga to survive.
They wish for it, we work for it
