The game was settled by a pair of penalties as both Mustafa Kizza and Frank Kalanda converted on 26 and 45 minutes for KCCA and Express respectively.

For KCCA it was more than the two dropped points, they also lost their men Ramathan Musa, who was red carded on 44 minutes, and goalkeeper Charles Lukwago, who broke his arm.
