The reigning league champions however have four games in hand.
At Kakindu, Robert Achema scored a double as BUL beat Bright Stars 2-0 while Soana drew 1-1 with JMC Hippos.
At Namboole, Sadolin Paints settled for a goalless draw with Lweza.
Allan Kyambadde notched a brace as Express defeated Police 4-3 in an entertaining encounter at Wankulukuku Stadium.
This was Express' second consecutive win, extending Police's winless streak to four games.
Mahad Kakooza and Simon Sserunkuma added the others for Express while Michael Birungi's double and Ibrahim Kibumba strike were not enough to deny the Red Eagles victory.
