Tusker FC took an enormous action towards their 12th Football Kenya Federation Premier League title after a 2-0 win over Kakamega Homeboyz.
In a match dipped into Ruaraka Premises on Thursday, night, an own objective by Brian Eshihanda and a Michael Madoya strike was all the Makers required to open a three-point space on top of the table.
The visitors began the match on a high note and were nearly rewarded inside 3 minutes. A quick counter-attack ended with Emery Mvuyekure well beaten, however Vincent Ngesa existed to clear the ball off the line.
David Odhiambo would have, a minimum of, linked the rebound however he shot over from close quarters.
That was an unsafe indication and the Makers needed to settle quick. They ultimately did and guaranteed they assaulted with every possibility that came their method.
Nevertheless, they needed to wait till the 38th minute prior to getting their objective. Homeboyz yielded a free-kick which was provided by Rodgers Aloro. Henry Meja snapped it however Francis Omondi existed to make a goal-line clearance.
Regrettably, for him, the ball struck fellow protector Eshihanda and bounced into the back of the web.
2 minutes later on, the league leaders doubled the benefit. This time around, it was Madoya who increased greatest to link an Aloro cross and guarantee his group went to the break with a two-goal benefit.
Neither of the 2 groups would get an objective after the break.
KCB’s aspirations of winning their first title suffered a significant blow after losing 2-1 away to Vihiga United. Samuel Mwangi opened the scoring for the Bankers in the 14th minute, however 2 minutes later on, Lawrence Luvanda equalised.
