Lwamba Bebeto scored the lone goal as Ushuru edged out Mathare United in a friendly played on Wednesday.
Bebeto slotted in from the penalty spot after Lennox Ogutu committed a foul inside the danger zone after Mathare defence failed to deal with a deadly counter attack by the tax collectors. Mathare United coach Francis Kimanzi was using the match to prepare for Sunday’s Kenyan Premier League round of fifteen league tie against Zoo Kericho to be staged at the Green Stadium.
Mathare are currently bottom of the table with ten points while Zoo are a place above relegation zone with 14 points. Both teams have played fourteen matches. Earlier in the day, National Super League side Nairobi City Stars held 2009 league champions, Sofapaka to a two-all draw at the Eastleigh grounds.
Meshack Karani and Humphrey Okoti were the scorers for Sofapaka while City Stars scored through John Kamau and David ‘Master’ Otieno. Sofapaka will play Nakumatt on Saturday at the Nyayo Stadium.
