Hood Kaweesa’s late strike rescued a point for Police FC as Express FC missed the chance to go level on points with second-placed SC Villa in a six goal thriller.
It was a remarkable end to a game that had seen the away side coming from behind twice.
Allan Kyambadde finish put them 1-0 up before Osman Mutuba levelled the scores.
Allan’s second looked to have won it for Red Eagles side but Kaweesa salvaged the draw in the last minute.
The point earned is not enough to lift Police out of the bottom three – they remain two point and place behind 12 th-placed Sadolin Paints – but it represents another notable improvement following three successive defeats.
For Express FC , it will represent two points lost and a step backwards having failed to register improvement after axing of coach Alex Gitta.
Allan was magnificent
Allan gave Eagles the lead in 5th minute with a beautiful goal holdingthe ball up before rolling a perfectly timed pass for an angled finish – and his superb header second, really showcased his talent which drew a rare smile from his coach.
However, Express attacking display was let down by key misses from Twekko Richard, who blazed over from inside the box at 2-1 when his side was trailing the hosts.
So it was against the run of play that Express equalized instantly minutes Simon Sserunkuma shot beyond Police keeper to levell the matters.
Ultimately, though, Wasswa Bossa will be left bemoaning an area in which his side have played in this game , as a series of defensive lapses cost them victory.
Resilient Police show improvement
At 1-0 down they refused to crumble, hitting back minutes before the break after as Osman Mutyamba – who had earlier seen a 12-yard shot saved by Mutumba Ivan – made no mistake capitalising on defence mixup for an equalizer.
Ssenfuka Rahmat stunner minutes after the break made it 2-1,and even when they fell behind again with 15 minutes to go, Police dug deep and were rewarded when the away side failed to properly clear a ball into the box and Hood Kaweesa fierce strike from the edge of the box found the net.
Ten man Express failed to snatch back victory and there was no doubt Police fans were the happier when referee sounded the final whistle on an enthralling game.
