Express 2-0 UPDF
Express’ quest to fight off possible relegation from the Azam Uganda Premier League (AUPL) gathered more steam on Tuesday when they dismissed fellow drop strugglers UPDF.
Michael Birungi and Zimula Jalilu goals at Wankulukuku lifted Express two places out of relegation to 12th on 25 points, bettering UPDF on goal difference.
The hosts, fresh from a 1-0 win over Mbarara City last week, went ahead on 13 minutes through Birungi before Zimula sealed an important victory for the Red Eagles on 32 minutes .
Although Express are now two places clear of relegation, the Red Eagles are hardly safe.
Below them UPDF are on similar 25 points, while Mbarara and Proline are two points fewer. Masavu are bottom on 20 points.
