Mathare United’s title ambitions received another major blow after they were held to a 1-1 draw by Thika United on Sunday.
The 'Slum Boys' blew up another chance to move joint top on the log with leaders Gor Mahia after dropping two crucial points against a side that is just one place above the relegation zone.
Eugine Mukangula was the first one to hit the back of the net for the milk men, but Clifford Alwanga ensured the sides shared the spoils with his equalizer later on.
It is not a good run for the 'slum boys' after they drew 2-2 with Vihiga United last weekend and it seems the team is missing the services of head coach Francis Kimanzi, who is away in India with the national team, Harambee Stars.
The 2008 champions have won only once in their last nine outings, 3-1 win against Zoo Kericho. High flying Nakumatt was humbled against bottom side Sony Sugar in another league match played on Sunday, after falling 3-1.
The sugar men scored first courtesy of Meshack Karani in the 10th minute before Brian Nyakan equalized. New signing Enock Agwanda ensured Sony go ahead in the 70th minute with Stephen Onyango scoring the third in the stoppages.
