Six clubs registered one point a piece from Kenyan Premier League matches played on Saturday

Muhoroni Youth moved from their 3-0 heartbreak at the hands of Nzoia Sugar last week to record a 1-1 draw against Thika United on Saturday at Thika Sub-county Stadium.

The Awasi-based outfit went to the match placed just above the relegation zone and they needed three points to better their position.

Thika United were at position 16 but a last week’s 1-1 draw against Gor Mahia was serving as their motivator ahead of Muhoroni Youth tie. All their players were available for selection save for the suspended Sammy Meja and the newly appointed head coach Nicholas Muyoti was hopeful of bagging three points at home.
