Two minutes before half time, Police levelled the game through Osman Mutumba who took the advantage of the miscommunication between the Express back four hence beating goal keeper, Ivan Mutumba.

Police were witnessed to be defiant themselves when they took the lead at the 49th minute through Rahmat Senfuka who thumped a long shot past Express’ goal keeper. Express could not accept the fact that the Cops were leading the game and just after three minutes, they answered by through Simon Sserunkuma. He later doubled his score and gave the Red Eagles a 3-2 lead when he partnered with Allan Kyambadde to tear apart the Cops’ defence. However, Express became shaky after their right back, Musa Mukasa was sent off at the 80th minute.

At the additional time, Police came back to the game through Hood Kaweesa who thumped a stunner past Express goal keeper hence levelling the score. Had Cops lost this match, this would be their fifth defeat of the season. Police earned their 7th point of the season in nine matches in this match while Express earned their 13th, 5 points behind leaders KCCA.
