KCB hold Gor to keep title chase alive, as Nzoia evades relegation

KCB relentles march towards the Football Kenya Federation Premier League title was interrupted as their two match winning streak was ended by a barren draw against Gor Mahia at the Thika Sub-County.

A victory to the bankers would have put them in a reasonably healthy position in the quest for a top finish and widen a two point gap against Tusker, but the result left them level on 58 point with league leaders Tusker,though Robert Matano’s side are crucially ahead on goal differences.

The two sides being levelled on two points mean, the title race promises to go down to the wire. Tusker remaining matches are against Kakamega Homeboyz, Nzoia Sugar and Bidco United.

On the other hand, KCB remaining ties are against bottom placed Vihiga United, AFC Leopards and Nairobi City Stars.

Earlier at the same venue, Western Stima relagation woes deepened as they  lacked the cutting edge infront of goals in their 0-0 draw against Posta Rangers. The two sides settled for a point in the quest to climb out of the relegation zone.

At Bukhungu Stadium, Bandari FC claimed a massive three points after coming from a goal down to emerge with 2-1 victory over Kakamega Homeboyz.

Mifield maestro David Odhiambo put Kakamega Homeboyz ahead in the 18th minute before Mwita Johanna replied for the coastal side in the 47th minute.Umar Kasumba scored the winning goal for Coach Casa Mbungo’s side from a close range in the 82nd minute.

The win put Bandari on fourth place with 46 points, three point above seventh placed Kakamega Homeboyz.

On the other hand, Wazito FC succumbed to a shocking 2-1 defeat to Nzoia Sugar with three matches to the end of the season.

Hillary Simiyu bagged a brace in the second and 18th minutes before Kevin Kimani scored a consolation goal from the spot kick after Nzoia’s Moses Mwalee handled the ball inside the box.
