Police FC Vs Express
Venue : Mandela National Stadium, Namboole
Kick off : 4:00pm
3 vital points are up for grabs as bottom placed Express FC takes on a free falling Police FC at Namboole stadium. Both sides are desperately looking for victory with the hosts winless in the last 7 games whereas their opponents are sitting on the wrong end of the table.
Police has had an alarming slump down the table following a poor start to the second half of the season and come into this tie after succumbing to 3 consecutive defeats.
Express come into this game on after sharing spoils with fellow strugglers Proline FC at Wankulukuku in a 0-0 draw whereas Police lost 2-0 to URA at Namboole.

Express has only won and drawn once away from home losing the other 7 games they have played away from home. On contrast, Abudallah Mubiru’s side has won 4 of the 9 games they have hosted this season, drawing 3 times and losing the other 2.
The last 7 meetings between the two sides have seen 3 wins for Express, 2 for Police and 2 draws.
The most recent meeting was in the first round when Police edged Express 1-0 at Wankulukuku courtesy of a Hood Kaweesa header.
Shafiq Bisaso’s men will rely on Alfred Leku and Isaac Kisujju Onyango if they are to claim their 5th victory of the season. Defender Edgar Bwogi remains Express’ injury concern while the rest of the squad is available for selection.
The Cops will have artistic midfielder Albert Mugisa return from suspension but will continue to miss Ben Ocen and Paul Willa who are sidelined with injuries.
Express are 16th on the log with 16 points garnered from 19 games and a victory can possibly elevate them from the base of the table but not away from the red zone. A win for Police can move them back to the 5th spot.
