Steven Mukwala scored URA’s consolation from a penalty spot on 58 minutes as the taxmen lost only their second game of the season.
Victory saw Express close the gap on leaders Vipers SC and URA to just one point. The Red Eagles have 35 points from 16 games, with the top three having all played the same number of matches.

Police’s win sees them dislodge SC Villa from the fifth spot on goal difference. Both have 28 points. Kyetume’s eighth defeat of the campaign has them third from bottom on 12 points.
