Elijah Mwanzia rescued a point on the road for Mathare United with a late penalty in a 1-1 draw against Chemelil Sugar away in Chemelil.

Mwanzia came off the bench to score the all-important goal for Francis Kimanzi's side, who picked their fourth draw in five matches. The ‘Slum Boys’ also shared the spoils with AFC Leopards in a mid-week match last Wednesday at Kasarani.

A composed Mwanzia scored from the spot to cancel out Chemelil Sugar’s opener via Chris Neto early in the opening half. Cliff Nyakeya was brought down by Chemelil Sugar’ Smith Ouko leaving the referee with no option but point to the spot.

Neto had put the hosts ahead in the 22nd minute with a clever lob over Levis Opiyo, who came off his line.

The draw increased Mathare United point tally to 22 though they are still bottom of the table below Western Stima, who have same points but a better goal aggregate.
