Express, spearheaded by Allan Kyambadde and Willy Kavuma attacked in numbers throughout the half and one of their efforts were rewarded as a controversial penalty decision was ruled in favour after one of their raids.

Police skipper, Francis Kawoya was judged by the referee to have handled the ball in the forbidden area and captain, Willy Kavuma made no mistake with just three minutes to the end of the game.

Police coach, Angleo Loneysi called off his entire in protest and it took the intervention of a concerned club official to convince the players resume play.

“I was cooling off my boys. Conceding a quick second goal was the next thing in line. Referees have continued to frustrate teams and i don’t know why”, Lonyesi spoke to Kawowo Sports of his decision.
