Both sides were beaten in match week 26 and surrendered the top positions, before their mid-week wins

Ushuru regained the top spot in the National Super League table after a 2-1 win over Administration Police on Wednesday.

Following a 2-1 stumble at Gusii Stadium against Shabana, the Taxmen had to win this particular encounter in order to remain in the Kenyan Premier League promotion race.

Victor Ochieng’s goal in the eighth minute set Ushuru on the winning course but an equaliser by AP’s Nicodemus Asumwa five minutes later brought Ken Kenyatta’s side level.

Six minutes after the resumption of the second half, Brian Yakhama restored Ushuru's lead and the side held on to earn them all the points at Camp Toyoyo.
