Busoga United, with a man down, beat on form URA FC in a StarTimes UPL game played at the Mighty Arena in Jinja.
Douglas Muganga was sent off by referee William Oloya after a second bookable offence in the 20th minute before the game was temporarily brought to a standstill as the hosts technical bench protested the decision.
Busoga managed to remain in character after a goalless first half before second half goals from David Bagoole, Nelson Mandela and Lawrence Tezikya sealed a 3-0 win.
