Juma Balinya scored his 10th of the season after 31 minutes to level SC Villa’s Bashir Mutanda as the current joint premier league top scorers before Johnson Odong sealed victory inside the four added minutes as Police added to Express’ misery. This was the second straight loss for the Red Eagles after opening the second round with a 1-0 loss away to Tooro United last time out.

Kisala conceded that his charges were not up to the task while Police’S Abdullah Mubiru noting that their loss to Abanyakale gave them room to retune.
