Ushuru FC went five points clear at the top of the table after downing Nairobi City Stars

Substitute Hillary Otieno was the hero as Administration Police scored a last-gasp goal to make it two wins in a row in the National Super League at Camp Toyoyo Grounds, Nairobi.

The Ben Bella-led side went ahead in the 14th minute courtesy of Asumwa Etemesi's strike before Salim Mzee doubling the advantage for the law enforcers immediately after the restart.

However, Moses Arita made it 2-1 with a great solo run in the 56th minute, but Fadhili Adam equalized with 20 minutes to go.

A defensive lapse, however, allowed the home team to grab the late winner that gave his side hope for survival.

At the same venue, Ushuru FC went five points clear at the top of the table after downing Nairobi City Stars.

The taxmen controversially went ahead in the first half after Alex Sunga's cheeky dive in the danger zone.

Replays indicated there was no foul, but referee Andrew Juma awarded a penalty that was well taken by Fan Ngaira.

Sunga scored the second for the Ken Kenyatta led side later into the match to help his team claim maximum points.

At Thika Stadium, former Ushuru FC and Muhoroni Youth man Lwamba Bebeto and David Orem were on target as the hosts Bidco United defeated visiting Kisumu All-Stars 2-0.

Modern Coast Rangers were handed a walkover as Green Commandos failed to honour their match.
