Express Football Club Head coach Shafik Bisaso earned his first point in six matches since joining the Red Eagles last year.

The Red Eagles held Onduparaka during a goal-less draw played at the Green Light Stadium in Arua on Saturday.

Since replacing Douglas Bamweyana in November 2017, Bisaso handled Express through five matches but had lost in all of them.

The home side had a first half disallowed goal for offside but laboured to make a cutting edge.

Former Express player Yafesi Mubiru started the game for Onduparaka before he paved way for another Express lad Ceasar Okhuti.

Onduparaka’s left back Rashid Okocha and substitute Okhuti were cautioned for unsporting conduct later in the second half.

Despite the draw, the Catarpillars remain 4th on the log with 26 points, off 16 matches, a point better than 5th placed Police.

Express still lingers in the relegation parameters, having collected just 12 points from 16 outings.

The Red Eagles are 15th, a point better than bottom lagging UPDF (11) who drew one all with Masavu (15 points).
