The Sam Ssimbwa led side is eight points behind leaders Gor Mahia, who have played two games less.

“It was a chance for us to close on our rivals, and pressure them at the top, unfortunately we failed to capitalize on our chances and it is not looking good on our side,” Ssimbwa told Goal.

"There are still nine matches left, it is a marathon and anything can happen, so it is upon us to do our job."

Gor Mahia will be away to Thika United on Sunday hoping to extend the lead at the summit to eleven points.
