Despite collecting just two out of a possible nine points, Maroons coach Asaph Mwebaze is content with the start to the new season.
The Prisons side returned to the top division for the 2017/18 campaign after spending just a season down and Mwebaze, their longest serving tactician understands why two points are important at this time in the campaign.
“In the campaign we were relegated, we garnered just three points in the whole first round,” he said in the aftermath of a goalless draw with URA at Luzira on Tuesday.
The Prisons side also drew 0-0 with KCCA on day one but lost 2-0 to Onduparaka in their second game.
Against the Tax Collectors, Mwebaze was happy with his backline for keeping a clean sheet.
“First of all we didn’t concede. That will give us encouragement going into next game.
Mwebaze also feels getting a point off two title contenders gives his side more belief and is a sign of improvement.
You have to consider the kind of opposition that we have played in the first three games. We have played KCCA, we have played URA. Now these are the title contenders. So if you can pick a point from these guys, you feel like you’re improving.
Maroons’ next game is a trip to Mutesa II stadium, Wankulukuku to face six-time champions Express on Saturday September 30.
