Bbosa who was appointed on Monday to try and save the club from relegation after replacing sacked George Ssimwogerewe became the first coach to win in Arua with three different teams.

He did it with SC Villa and Tooro United.

The Red Eagles who had gone two games without a win saw their midfielder Lawrence Kigonya sent off after two bookable offenses, but that did not stop Express for fighting for victory at fortress-like Arua.

Substitute Frank Ssenyondo's strike in the 85th minute helped Express to climb from the relegation zone to 11th on 24 points.

In his first interview after his appointment on Monday, Bbosa revealed that they only need to four of the ten remaining matches to avoid relegation.

"We can survive relegation. This is a big club with a rich history, it should not be in such relegation battles," he said.

Looking at their reputation, Express is six-time champions of the league, with 10 Uganda Cup 10 titles.

Elsewhere, substitute Brian Aheebwa scored the only as Mbarara City defeated Police 1-0 upon their return at Kakyeka stadium.
