*Police FC 0-1 KCCA FC

Herbert Achai scored the only goal to lift visiting KCCA FC over Police FC in a league game at StarTimes Stadium, Lugogo.

Achai sent in a rocket into the top corner from outside the box to hand KCCA a lead in the 20th minute.

Police FC remain winless in six league games leaving the side in suspense of survival.

KCCA FC had goalkeeper Ali Mwirusi for his full debut after he had featured earlier on in the previous game against Express FC when he came on for injured Charles Lukwago.

The hosts came rejuvanted to register a win at home but goalkeeper Mwirusi kept out many saved to deny Abdallah Mubiru’s side including a Dennis Rukundo’s header.

Mubiru made an early substitution when he brought on Basan Safi for Samson Kigozi.

Fahad kizito had his strike blocked by Peter Magambo after he had received a low pass from Pius Kaggwa who also hit the side net.

Derrick Kakooza had his header kept out by Mwirusi off a well delivered Dennis Rukundo.
