Goal reviews week 25 of KPL that saw K'Ogalo concede for the first time against the Shoppers as Mathare United remained winless

The Kenyan Premier League round of 25 produced some stellar performances, key among them Gor Mahia being forced to a fifth draw of the season while Mathare United remained winless in eight games.

  • James Situma signs for Mathare United.

    #1 James Situma scoop extra bonus

    Mathare United defender James Situma will be smiling all the way to the bank even after his side succumbed to a rejuvenated AFC Leopards on Sunday. Situma scored deep into the break and his equalizing goal, after Ingwe had taken the lead from the penalty spot, will earn him a few extra coins in bonuses. According to Mathare United contract, if a player scores in the opening five or the last minutes he is entitled to extra pay in match bonus. Situma’s goal, however, was not enough to save his side from the sharp claws of Leopards as they lost 2-1.

  • Mathare United coach Francis Kimanzi in action.

    #2 Kimanzi staring at touchline ban

    Mathare United took their winless run to eight league games. The latest setback came from the same team - AFC Leopards, who handed them a 4-3 beating in the first leg. Sunday’s 2-1 score line was so painful that coach Francis Kimanzi opted to skip the mandatory TV interview. Such an unsporting act may come with up to three-match touchline ban or even monetary fine from the Kenyan Premier League Limited.

    #3 Nakumatt pick point from Gor Mahia

    The Shoppers have seen tremendous growth under American coach Melis Mode, who joined the team slightly over two months ago. Nakumatt, who were facing relegation in the first leg, have since turned around their fortune and a 2-2 draw against champions Gor Mahia was a clear testament that even their eye-catching display against Tusker, Posta Rangers, and Kakamega Homeboyz, whom they beat 6-1, were not a fluke. The draw against Gor Mahia saw the club bring to an end a poor run against K’Ogalo when they picked a point and managed to score for the first time.

  • MICHAEL MADOYA of Zoo Kericho v KEPHA ANDATI of Kariobangi.

    #4 Sony Sugar & Zoo keep shining

    Zoo Kericho handed Kariobangi Sharks their third consecutive defeat after squeezing a 2-1 victory while Sony Sugar made it three wins in three matches with a 3-1 victory over a struggling Thika United. Sony have continued to impress under coach Patrick Odhiambo, who took over from Salim Babu when the side was facing relegation. Odhiambo injected fresh blood in the mid-season transfer window and the gamble seems to be paying off. Zoo on the other hand, stretched their unbeaten record to four matches with another win over Sharks.
