Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) Football Club attained their 10th victory of the season during their 2-1 victory on the road to Express before an entirely empty Mutesa II Stadium, Wankulukuku.

Midfielder Mikidadi Ssenyonga and second-half substitute Anwar Ntege scored in either half for Sam Ssimbwa’s side.

Frank Kalanda found the consolation for Express FC in the closing 20 minutes of the game.

Goals from Ssenyonga and Ntege in the 15th and 49th minutes respectively gave the tax collectors a 2-0 lead at some stage.

Ntege had replaced forward Daniel Isiagi at the start of the second half in the double change that also witnessed first goal scorer Ssenyonga pave way for Patrick Mbowa.
