Despite taking the lead first, the newcomers were defeated in the end as Munala's header in the second half was what the Bankers needed to win

KCB have handed Wazito FC their third straight loss after picking up a 2-1 win in a Kenyan Premier League (KPL) match at Kenyatta Stadium on Sunday.

Wazito took the lead when Lloyd Wahome directed the ball into KCB's net before Enock Agwanda levelled the score 10 minutes later. A well-taken header by Simon Munala handed KCB the win to condemn the newcomers to yet another loss.

Wazito threatened KCB in the fifth minute when Elvis Rupia's low shot almost evaded Joseph Okoth but the former Bandari custodian managed to quickly react and parry the ball away to save the home side their early blushes. 

Okoth's mistake in the 25th minute allowed Wazito to open the score. The goalkeeper left his line to clear a cross from Ali Hassan's free-kick but he missed it and the ball was tapped home by Wahome.

KCB won a penalty in the 33rd minute and veteran striker Agwanda stepped up and converted it with ease to bring the score level.

The Bankers would have taken a lead in the 52nd minute but Samuel Mwangi did not manage to control the ball inside the box. Agwanda had picked him with a quick throw-in but his shot flew over the bar with no one from Wazito on sight to trouble him.

Wazito were reduced to 10 men in the 67th minute after receiving two yellow cards and KCB did not hesitate as they found the back of the net again in the 72nd minute via Munala's header.
