Goal parades some of the players’ who did exceptionally well during week three of the Kenyan Premier League

  1. Goal Kenya.

    #1 Barnabas Tiema - Vihiga United

    The ex-AFC Leopards custodian brought his experience into play, commanding back line well. He handled whatever that was brought on his way well and at long last managed to help his side get a vital point against one of the best sides in the league.

  2. Goal Kenya.

    #2 Marvin Onyango - Wazito FC

    Wazito trusted this man, and he is already justifying his inclusion in the team. Had a solid performance against Kakamega Homeboyz and managed to help his side keep a clean sheet, as well as get a valuable point against a tough opponent.

  3. Goal Kenya.

    #3 Wilson Anekeya - Homeboyz

    For the second week running, Anakeya has made it into our team of the week. He was unbeatable against Wazito, and handled the opponents’ wingers with top class defending. He is proving to be an asset for the Western-based side.

  4. Goal Kenya.

    #4 George Owino - Mathare United

    Ulinzi Stars’ attackers were definitely not going to make it easy against the ‘slum boys’, but the skipper had his own ways of cooling them. He won most of the fifty-fifty tackles as well as aerial duels as Mathare United maintained their unbeaten start to the season.

  5. Goal Kenya.

    #5 Omar Mbongi - Ulinzi Stars

    The soldiers should thank Mbongi for the point earned against Mathare United. He was always at the right place and at the right time to stop vital attacks, and it seemed he was the only defender at work. The good thing about him is that he does not tolerate 'crap' at the back.

  6. Goal Kenya.

    #6 Kevin Omondi - Nakumatt

    The Shoppers should thank this man for his excellent display in the midfield that helped the team win. He kept fellow midfielders compact, and made passing look simple. Intercepted most attacks and provided cover when most needed.

  7. Goal Kenya.

    #7 David Simiyu - Sony Sugar

    Another midfielder, who had a perfect outing. He contained Zoo Kericho and was quick to shut them down when the team lost possession. Simiyu was rewarded with a goal that ensured his side bagged maximum points for the second time in a row, at home.

  8. Goal Kenya.

    #8 Benjamin Mosha - Sony Sugar

    Mosha is underrated, but does most of his talking on the pitch. He formed a formidable partnership with David Simiyu, and created several chances for the team. He was quite unfortunate not to have inked his name on the score sheet.

  9. Goal Kenya.

    #9 Daniel Mwaura – Mathare United

    Justified his inclusion in the first team with a lively performance. Gave Ulinzi Stars all sorts of problems in the right wing. Was quite unfortunate to be denied an assist by an assistant referee's flag, but the fact remains, he never disappointed.

  10. Stafford Ondego/Goal Kenya.

    #10 Brian Nyakan – Nakumatt FC

    Nyakan is proving to be the one to fill the void left by lead striker Kepha Aswani. He produced a good display against Nzoia Sugar and ensured he kept the defenders busy for the entire period he was on the pitch. Was rewarded with a winner later on, his second in as many matches.

  11. Goal Kenya.

    #11 Cliff Nyakeya - Mathare United

    Just like David Mwaura, the former Gor Mahia man was a live wire for Ulinzi Stars. He terrorized the defenders with his pace and intelligence. Was unfortunate to be denied a goal by the officials, but just like his teammate, he had a perfect outing.
