The Kenya Premier League produced an eventful matchday over the weekend. Below, we look at the main talking points from the action.
Kariobangi Sharks Awake From Their Slumber
Prior to the match against Kisumu All-Stars, Kariobangi Sharks had won just twice this season and were in danger of slipping in the relegation places.
It was actually a relegation six-pointer but the result turned out to completely prove otherwise as Sharks ut eight goals past a Kisumu All Stars side that looks destined for the NationalSuper league next season. That result could be what William Muluhyas team needs to kickstart their season.
Elvis Rupia Steps Up in Makwattas Absence
AFC Leopards lost their best player his season and the top scorer in the league Mark Makwatta who moved to Zambia. Ingwe fans were fearing the worst ahead of their Visit to Ulinzi Stars who have lost just once at home this season.
As it turned out, Elvis Rupia who joined the club from Wazito Fc scored the all-important winner as Leopards beat the Soldiers 1-0 on his debut.
Wazito Finally Ends Embarassing Run
After losing seven league matches on the bounce, Wazito FCfinally put an end to the dismal run with a 1-1 draw away to Kakamega Homeboyz.
The team is hower still in danger of facing the drop as they are just four points above the relegation zone.
Kenya Commerical Bank made it nine matches unbeaten in the league with a hard-fought 2-1 victory over Zoo Kericho. Zedekiah Otieno’s side has also won our consecutive matches and is third on the table, six points behind leaders Gor Mahia.
KCB is increasingly looking like a team that could challenge Gor Mahia for the title this season.#Kenya
