Thirteen minutes later, forward Mubiru Yafessi doubled the lead for the “Mukwano gwa bangi” converting from a spot kick after a foul on Mutyaba inside the forbidden area before Mutyaba grabbed his second on the day and Express’ third from a free kick at the half hour mark.

Prodigal son Allan Kyambadde who returned to Wankulukuku on loan from Vipers stretched the lead when he connected to Mahad Kakooza’s cross for Express’ fourth in the 34th minute to give the Wasswa Bossa coached side a 4-0 halftime lead.

After recess, the visitors pulled one back but this could not save the damage as two late goals from Mubiru and Tekkwo Derrick completed the rout. Mubiru completed his brace in the 85th minute with a header while Tekkwo scored from a spot kick in the 90th minute when Mubiru was brought down.
