Kenyan premier league champions Gor Mahia are now eight points clear at the top of the table after a dull 0-0 draw against a very organised Western Stima in a match played at a full to capacity Kisumu stadium.
Gor Mahia march on to 28 points from 11 matches, with 8 wins and three draws to remain the only unbeaten team in the league. It was a fruitful outing for Gor who beat Sony Sugar 1-0 in a water logged Awendo green stadium in mid week before they travelled to Kisumu. Up next for the champions in a home match against Nakuru All stars who have lost 10 of their opening 11 matches this season.
Thika United are joined in second position on 19 points with Western Stima, though with a game in hand. Thika are high flying this season having lost just once. But then they face a litmus test in their next match on Wednesday May 13 when they host former champions Sofapaka.
Tusker sit in fourth position on 18 points, just a point behind Thika and Western Stima. Tusker are also in action on wednesday May 13th and they will be up against a very tactical Mathare United. This is almost a derby match as both teams come from the same area. Whats more, Tusker is led by former Mathare united point men. It starts with the coaches; Head coach Francis Kimani and his Assistant Salim Ali are both former players and coaches at Mathare United. Then goalkeeper Duncan Ochieng, defender Lloyd Wahome, midfielders Denis Nzomo and Osborn Monday plus strikers Jesse Were and Ishmail Dunga are all former Mathare United players.
Two more matches likely to change the shape of the league will be played on Tuesday May 12. Ulinzi Stars will be at home against Chemelil Sugar as AFC Leopards make the dreaded trip to play Bandari F.C who are a mighty force when they play at home at the Mbaraki Stadium. Bandari expect a full house for that match as there will be no gate charges. Bandari waived the gate fees for all their matches to encourage more fans to go watch their team in action.
