Isaac Waigona’s first half header was the only notable highlight of a boring evening at Muteesa II stadium Wankulukuku.

He headed home from close range thanks to a sweet cross by Marvin Oshaba at the stroke of half time.

Express had gone three games winless since new coach Baker Mbowa took charge. They had suffered back to back defeats at the hands of SC Villa, Maroons and Wakiso Giants.

David Obua’s URA did not at any time look like a team ready to end their slumber after also going four consecutive matches without tasting victory. In fact, they have only picked one point out of a possible 12.

The biggest highlight on URA’s end was Obua’s antics of stripping captain Enock Walusimbi of his armband and handing it to Ibrahim Wammana in the 47th minute.

 

In the first period, it was only midfielder Norman Namanya who tried to get something positive for the tax collectors but his long range effort was dealt with easily by Abubakar in Express’ goal posts.

Ibrahim Dada also got close to finding an equalizer for the visitors but he did not react Swift enough to the rebound off Joshua Lubwama’s shot.

Express FC moved 29 points in 9th place, just a single point behind URA.
