George Best Nsimbe hopes goalless draw at Nakivubo in the top of the table clash with KCCA on Friday serves as a turning point for the rest of the season.
The defending champions who have two games in hand remained six points behind KCCA after 27 games. Mike Mutebi’s side stay top of the 16 team log on 52 points.
“I’m happy with everything, not just the result,” he said after the game.
“We struggled a bit at first, but it’s normal because it’s a difficult place to play at. It wasn’t easy, but I’m proud of the players.
“Before the game we knew we had to keep working well. What we had was a good game, but there was still three points at stake
“It’s a derby and it’s not bad to pick a point away from home. We have to think about resting well and thinking about the next game, which is very important.
“We’re six points behind [KCCA] and we have to think about the five remaining games. Then we’ll see what happens because we are still very much in the title race.
“I liked all of my players. Defensively we made an enormous effort.
“When I see a team who are together and fighting for one another, it’s the best thing for a Coach.
“In football, everything happens – bad and good moments. Our start wasn’t so good, but it’s better to start poorly and finish strongly. Now we must rest and I want us to play like this until the end of the season. I’m happy.”
