    #1 Mathare United fires blank again

    Mathare United found themselves moving further down in the Kenyan Premier League standings after another disappointing weekend in the KPL week 22. ‘The Slum Boys’ thrice pulled the ball from their own net in a 3-2 defeat at the hands of Sofapaka, a result that saw the Francis Kimanzi led side drop two places to fifth on the table. Mathare United were third on the table before the round of 22 matches. Pistone Mutamba, Kepha Aswani and Elly Asieche’s goals left Mathare United still searching for a first win in the last five games.

  • Sofapaka Kepha Aswani Stephen Waruru and Denns Odhiambo.

    #2 Pistone Mutamba shines

    The lanky striker has become an instant hit since his move from Wazito in the June transfer window. Mutamba scored his third goal in two appearances in Batoto ba Mungu shirt as they cruised to a 3-2 win over Mathare United on Sunday. Mutamba beat three Mathare United defenders to their paces to slot home his ninth goal of the season. Francis Omondi and Alphonce Ndonye scored for Mathare United.

  • AFC Leopards v Sony Sugar.

    #3 AFC Leopards bounces back

    Former champions AFC Leopards put behind their embarrassing 3-1 defeat at the hands of Kakamega Homeboyz with a slim victory against Sony Sugar. Salim ‘Shitu’ Abdallah scored the lone goal to help Rodolfo Zapata pick his first win of July. The victory pushed AFC Leopards to fourth place, above Mathare United and Ulinzi Stars, who are fifth and sixth respectively.

  • Ulinzi Stars v Thika United.

    #4 Another draw for Ulinzi Stars

    Ulinzi Stars could be sitting six places and 15 points behind league leaders Gor Mahia, but that is not the point. The cause of concern for Coach Dunstan Nyaudo should be the copious poor result picked at home. Out of 11 home games, Ulinzi Stars have only managed to pick two wins, losing three and drawing six at Afraha Stadium. The 1-1 draw with Kariobangi Sharks was the latest of the numerous draws Nyaudo should be concerned about anytime he steps foot at Afraha.

  • Nzoia Sugar coach Bernard Mwalala looks on as his side registered another important win

    #5 Mwalala picks first win with Bandari

    While Nyaudo is battling a poor home record, Bernard Mwalala kicked-off his reign as Bandari coach with a home victory against Kakamega Homeboyz at Mbaraki Stadium on Saturday. Mwalala left Nzoia Sugar for greener pasture at the coastal city. The Dockers beat Homeboyz to move third on the log, just five behind second placed Sofapaka. Gor Mahia are at the summit with nine points even though they were not involved in league action as they are in Tanzania for the Cecafa Kagame Cup.

  • Elvis Rupia of Nzoia Sugar.

    #6 Elvis Rupia misses penalty

    KPL top scorer Elvis Rupia blew away a golden opportunity to extend his tally to 16 when he missed chance from the spot. Nzoia Sugar settled for 0-0 draw with Posta Rangers but at the expenses of Rupia, who directed his spot kick off the bar. Nzoia needed to win to recover from a 2-0 defeat against Sony Sugar before Sunday’s draw. The two points lost left Nzoia 10th on the table with 28 pints after 22 rounds of matches.
