Express FC has confirmed the appointment of Baker Mbowa as a replacement for departed Alex Isabirye.

Isabirye quit the Red Eagles last week after less than three months in charge after he had taken over from James Odoch who was sacked before conclusion of the first round.

Mbowa will be deputized by former Express, KCCA and Vipers attacker Mike Sulaiman Mutyaba on a two-year contract.

The duo finds Express ninth on the log with 29 points after 19 games and out of the Stanbic Uganda Cup at the round of 16.
