It is getting tough for Ingwe after they were pushed to the bottom of the 18-team table following Mount Kenya United’s win against Zoo Kericho

  • Sony Sugar v Kakamega Homeboyz.

    #1 Sony hit four past Western Stima

    Sony Sugar took their unbeaten run to four games with a massive victory against their fellow brothers from Nyanza, Western Stima. Sony grabbed their eighth point from a possible 12 in the last four games with an emphatic 4-0 win over the newly promoted side. Interestingly, this was the biggest victory recorded this week and Western Stima’s third defeat of the season. The Millers thus moved to seventh, a place above Western Stima on the log.

  • AFC Leopards coach Casa Mbungo.

    #2 Mbungo still winless in four games

    Mathare United scored two late goals as they kept pace with league leaders Bandari. While the 2-0 win finally brought to an end a five-game winless run, it left AFC Leopards coach Casa Mbungo still waiting for his first three points in four games as Ingwe lost yet again. The 13-time Kenyan champions have now gone for six consecutive games without a win and are languishing at the bottom of the log. It will take a miracle for Mbungo’s side to climb out.

    #3 Bandari maintain the lead

    Coach Bernard Mwalala denied his former side a point when he handed Nzoia Sugar a fourth consecutive defeat in the last four games thanks to a solitary goal at the Mbaraki Stadium. The win left the Dockers two points clear at the summit and a five-game unbeaten record. Bandari, who have lost just once, are at the summit with 31 points, followed by Mathare United and Gor Mahia on 29 and 26 points respectively.

    #4 AFC Leopards drop to the bottom

    It is a given fact that AFC Leopards have been struggling in the league. By Sunday, the former champions were in position 17th on the log, just a place above the bottom. But Mount Kenya United didn’t show any mercy to the already wounded Ingwe. After chilling with Ingwe in the relegation zone for that last two weeks, Mount Kenya United finally made a decision to move out, thanks to a 1-0 win over Zoo Kericho on Sunday.

    #5 Poor officiating in KPL

    The match between Kariobangi Sharks and hosts Vihiga United was an interesting one. Sharks needed a late Duke Abuya’s free-kick to salvage a point against a determined Vihiga, who took the lead just five minutes after kick-off. But Vihiga’s appeal for a second goal was not heeded to. The ball slid past keeper Brian Bwire, who recovered to pick it just on the line, though TV clips showed the ball had crossed the line; an incident that once again raised questions about the level of officiating in the top flight.
