Mathare United.
The 'Slum Boys' have won only two of their last 14 games, the last victory being registered against Zoo FC on June 2 while Ingwe floored Vihiga

    #1 AFC pick win after derby lose

    AFC Leopards showed the true character of a real fighter after recovering from a derby defeat to bag three points on Sunday. Ingwe dusted themselves from a 2-1 defeat against rivals Gor Mahia a week ago to register a 1-0 victory against Vihiga United. Marvin Nabwire handed coach Rodolfo Zapata maximum points with a lone goal that came with a fair share of its own drawback after he was stretched off with an injury.

  2. Mathare United.

    #2 Mathare United poor run stretches

    Mathare United may not have moved positions after the 24th rounds of matches but coach Francis Kimanzi could be losing a lot of hair as his side continued to drop more points following a string of poor performances. Mathare United have picked a paltry five points from a possible 21 in the last seven games, a result that leaves them with dimming hopes of a top-four finish. The ‘Slum Boys’ now finds themselves fighting stiff competition to retain their sixth place, going into the rounds of 25 after going down 2-0 to relegation candidates Sony Sugar.

  3. Goal Kenya.

    #3 Sony Sugar second straight win

    While Mathare United are still licking the wound of a tough battle staged at Camp Toyoyo, one team has since turned around their fortune following a sloppy start to the season. After a heavy recruitment service in the mid-season transfer window, Sony Sugar have picked three victories from the last four games. Only league leaders Gor Mahia and former giants AFC Leopards have managed to squeeze maximum points from the heavy machines of the Awendo-based side.

    #4 Bandari pick first win over Sharks

    Bandari finally managed to escape from the sharp teeth of Kariobangi Sharks after the Dockers handed the William Muluya coached side a first defeat at Mbaraki Stadium. Coach Bernard Mwalala finally managed to do what Paul Nkata and Ken Odhiambo failed to do when the former Nzoia Sugar man, steered the Dockers to victory over the slum-based side. William Wadri scored a brace to hand Bandari a 3-0 win over Sharks to move to third on the log with 39 points.

  5. Ulinzi Stars.

    #5 Ulinzi Stars continues to fire blanks

    Ulinzi Stars missed on a chance to move to third on the log after they were held to a 0-0 draw by visiting Nzoia Sugar. The result is among the many poor results that Ulinzi Stars have registered at their backyard – Afraha Stadium in Nakuru. Ulinzi Stars last picked maximum points at home on April 28 when they forced a 2-0 win over Chemelil Sugar. Since then, Dunstan Nyaudo have gone six games without victory at home; playing five draws and a defeat.

  6. Tusker.

    #6 Matano beat former student Baraza

    Tusker dented Sofapaka’s hope of closing the gap with leaders Gor Mahia when the Brewers handed the former champions a 2-1 defeat. Tusker took full advantage of the additional rest hours handed owing to the heavy downpour that forced the postponement of the match on Sunday to sink Batoto ba Mungu at Ruaraka Ground. Robert Matano showed his former student, John Baraza that he’s the real teacher by grabbing three crucial points that pushed them to eighth on the log.
