Kefa Kisala’s Uganda People’s Defence Forces Football Club at home edged a Abdullah Mubiru’s Police FC at the Bombo Military Playground, a side that has been in great form and top of the League at some point. This game came at a time when both these teams are going to break off up to February next year to allow Uganda prepare for the forthcoming CHAN tournament in Cameroon.

Into the game, UPDF just came with a strategy to not allow Police FC to play its free flowing football through players like Sam Kintu, Hussein Zungu and Ibrahim Wammanah hence not also giving them a chance at any point on their goal. Ruben Kabuye scored the only goal of the game, tapping from close range after Ikara had spilled Brian Kayanja’s initial effort.
