MENGO – Express FC have been drawn to face Police in the Stanbic Uganda Cup Round of 16.

This was confirmed on Wednesday when the draws were conducted the FUFA head quarters in Mengo.

The game between the two will be the third time that they face off this season and the second at Wankulukuku.

On Monday, Police defeated Express 2-0 in the second game of the 2018/19 StarTimes Uganda Premier League season.

The win for the Cops meant that either side had defeated the other once. It also resulted to the firing of Kefa Kisala who was later replaced by George Ssemwogerere.

Last year’s finalist Vipers SC have been handed a relatively negotiable fixture, at home to Kiboga Young.

Vipers lost last years final 1-0 to KCCA FC in Bukedea.
