In another match, Kariobangi Sharks are winless in eight outings after settling to a 1-1 draw against Posta Rangers

Western Stima’s new coach Babu Salim started life at the club on a sour note after falling 2-0 to visitors Sony Sugar in a Kenyan Premier League (KPL) match played on Saturday.

Striker Derrick Otanga was the hero for the Sugar Millers, after coming from the bench to score the goals in the 65th minute and 89th minutes respectively.

The results worsened the Powermen’s woes, considering the fact that former coach Paul Ogai threw in the towel just last week. As a result, Western Stima are 14th on the log with 27 points, nine less than seventh-placed Sony Sugar.
