Ssenkaba strikes as Express FC overcomes URA to climb into 4th

George Ssenkaba scored the all important goal as Express FC defeated URA FC at the Arena of Visions in Bombo on Sunday.

The striker netted inside the opening 11 minutes of the contest to ensure the Red Eagles register third victory of the season.

Ssenkaba who also netted the winning goal as Express beat SC Villa before the league break, struck the winning goal on Sunday, off a fierce shot from 30 yards.

Wasswa Bbosa’s side could have gone into the break with a two goal caution but Eric Kambala’s goal was disallowed as the forward was judged to have handled the ball.

Captain Enock Walusimbi saw the up-right deny him his first for the season after he was set-up by Daniel Shabeena.

For URA, they slump to 5th with 11 points.

In their next fixtures, Express FC hosts KCCA FC at Wankulukuku next Wednesday while URA are away to MYDA FC on the same day.
