After a bad start to the season, Gor Mahia made a number of changes to the team and the changes seem to be working with the champions showing the flashes they have been well known for in the past. They are currently fourth on the log after their latest win, a 2 – 0 victory over Muhoroni Youth on Saturday 7 May.
The champions took advantage of Mathare United’s slump on the 12th week of action, cutting the gap to just four points as Mathare United dropped to second place after the 2 – 2 draw with Western Stima on Sunday 8 May.
Tusker FC were the biggest gainers on the weekend, beating Kakamega Homeboyz 1 – 0, albeit in controversial fashion, to rise to the summit of the KPL log.
While Tusker were enjoying the good spoils on the weekend, Sofapaka were left languishing at the bottom of the 16 – team log with a 0 – 1 loss to an improving Sony Sugar FC and while Sony Sugar reveled in their recent good form, fellow Millers – Chemelil Sugar could only manage a 1 – 1 draw with Bandari FC on a weekend that saw more draws than wins registered in the league.
Ushuru FC, playing at home to Nairobi City Stars at the Moi International Sports Center Kasarani failed to take advantage and only managed a barren draw with the Kawangware based side while the only other game that had no goals saw AFC Leopards and Posta Rangers battle to a draw.
The result would be more welcome to Leopards who went to the match on the back of three losses.
At the Thika Sub County Stadium, Thika United, playing hosts to Ulinzi Stars managed just a 1 – 1 draw.
