Big wigs were felled on Saturday in the National Super League as the race for Kenyan Premier League promotion was thrown wide open.

At Camp Toyoyo Grounds, Nairobi City Stars came from a goal down to floor Ushuru FC 2-1. The Kawangware-based side fell earlier on courtesy of Andrew Murunga in the 21st minute.

However, Ezekiel Odera leveled matters from the penalty spot with about eight minutes to the break. The winning goal came deep into the stoppages courtesy of substitute Jumba Oscar, who capitalized on the defensive lapses.

Second placed KCB was also felled by Isibania in another match. The visitors were the first to score in the third minute through Simon Abuko, however, the hosts leveled matters in the 22nd minute courtesy of Raymond Osodo, before Felix Okik netted the winner in added time.
