Police thrashed Kitara 4-1 on a day leaders Vipers and title condensers Express both failed to win on Tuesday.

This leaves URA with the chance to open up a two point advantage at the top of the Startimes Uganda Premier League (UPL) when they host SC Villa in Ndejje on Wednesday.

Vipers played out a goalless draw with Wakiso Giants at the St Mary’s Stadium in Kitende while Express suffered a 2-1 defeat to Soltilo Bright Stars at Kavumba.

Bright Stars showed impeccable resilience in their come-from-behind victory, in which they also missed a penalty.

Simon Ssemayange was the architect of both Bright Stars goals.

He first set up Sam Ssekamate to sweep home a low cross for the equalizer after Ibrahim Kayiwa’s deflected header had given Express a 1-0 half time lead.

Ssemayange then assisted substitute Emmanuel Loki, who headed in his corner kick four minutes from time.

The victory sent Bright Stars to sixth position with 29 points while Express remain third on 37 after failing to win in their last three games.

Vipers failure to beat Wakiso moves them just by a point to 43, one ahead of URA and six in front of Express.

The draw lifted Wakiso to 12th position, level on 20 points with Busoga, who lost 1-0 to Kyetume. The latter remain four points from safety.

On their side, Police were in unforgiving mood, putting four past lowly Kitara.

Coach Abdallah Mubiru’s men returned to fourth place after a brace from Ben Ochen and two goals from Frank Tumwesigye and Hassan Mahmood gave them a commanding 4-1 win.

In Bugembe, Bul edged UPDF 4-3 in a pulsating seven-goal thriller.

Deogratius Ojok put the hosts ahead just four minutes into the game from the spot.

Simon Oketch doubled their advantage 15 minutes later but a Dudu Ramathan own goal and Ezekiel Katende’s strikes after restart opened the match up.

Oketch and Brian Kayanja brought the score level to 3-3 inside the hour before Robert Mukhongotya grabbed the winner to end Bul’s four-match winless streak.
