The Purple Sharks were without head coach Douglas Bamweyana to fuel rumours about his resignation.
Despite all the happenings, Wakiso under Alex Gitta, put everything aside and put up a spirited performance against the Cops.

Bogere got the first chance of the game in the 34th minute but shot straight to the goalkeeper when put through on goal by Amos Muwonge.
Three minutes later, the Visitors broke the deadlock through Satulo who tapped in home after goalkeeper Tom Ikara parried into his path following Moses Aliro’s free-kick.
It was all wild celebrations from Wakiso Giants fans headed by Director Musa Atagenda who attended in person to cheer his side.
At the restart of the second half, Police returned a more rejuvenated side having had a poor start in the game as the Visitors sat deeper.
Wakiso’s goalkeeper Derrick Emukule was called into action just at the second half resumption. First he saved Brian Muluuli’s shot while in the area before later saving Juma Balinya’s outside the area.
On the other end, Amos Muwonge almost doubled his side’s lead but when on the countertop but he headed straight to a well positioned Tom Ikara.
There on, the Visitors defended tirelessly as they sat deep to bag all the three points on the day.
