Express FC registered their first victory of the season with a 2-0 away win over Busoga United on Thursday at Njeru.
Allan Kayiwa and an own goal from Stephen Odongo earned the Red Eagles their first three points.
Last season’s top scorer Kayiwa gave the visitors the lead from the spot after Odongo had fouled Isaac Wagoina in the forbidden area in the first period.
