  • AFC Leopards Marvin Nabwire v Nakumatt.

    #1 Three wins in a row for AFC Leopards

    AFC Leopards picked their third straight victory following a domineering 4-2 win over Nakumatt. The Big Cat exerted its supremacy over the Elephant when they picked their third win in four matches against the Shoppers in a six goal thriller at the Kenyatta Stadium on Sunday. Ezekiel Odera, Jafari Odenyi and Marvin Nabwire did the work for Rodolfo Zapata, who moved third on the log above Sofapaka. AFC Leopards are yet to lose a top game since their 2-1 defeat against Gor Mahia on July 22.

  • Bernard Mwalala of Nzoia Sugar.

    #2 Bernard Mwalala remains unbeaten

    Bernard Mwalala might just be one of the most sought after local coaches at the end of the 2018 Kenyan Premier League season, going by his recent form with Bandari. Mwalala moved to the Coastal City of Mombasa from Nzoia Sugar and the tactician has adapted well at his new station. Mwalala, who is still undefeated in the second leg, pulled off another important victory when Bandari handed Tusker a 1-0 defeat on Sunday. 

  • Mathare United v Kariobangi Sharks.

    #3 Mathare United end winless run

    Finally, Mathare United managed to pick a win after eight treacherous attempts. The ‘Slum Boys’ ended their 720 minutes run without a single victory with another historic 2-1 derby win against Kariobangi Sharks, whom they beat for the first time in the top flight. Mathare United dropped two points against Sharks in the first leg and the result was a continuation of a poor run against the 2017 league debutantes, who beat them home and away last season.

  • AFC Leopards v Sony Sugar.

    #4 Sony Sugar move to top ten

    Three months ago, Sony Sugar were staring at relegation after a poor start to the season. But that has since changed, owing to system overhaul on Sony machines, changes that also saw coach Salim Babu replaced by Patrick Odhiambo. Sony Sugar broke into the top ten for the first time this season and their victory on the road is worth breaking a bottle after they left behind a trail of destruction at Afraha Stadium thanks to 1-0 win over Ulinzi Stars.

  • Gor Mahia fans at Afraha Stadium

    #5 Jinxed Afraha haunting Ulinzi Stars

    Ulinzi Stars have continued to record more ‘casualties’ at home with Afraha proving to be a bad hunting ground for the Soldiers. Out of their last 14 home games, Ulinzi Stars have only managed three victories at home-against Chemeli Sugar, Tusker and Zoo FC. The Dunstan Nyaudo led side, who are now fifth on the log, are firing blanks at home and they will need to cork their guns and hit the target in the remaining three home games if they are to finish at a respectable position.
