FKFPL Wrap: Leopards’ Impressive Form Continues as Gor Mahia Lose Points

City Stars bounced back from disappointing results in their recent two games with a huge away win against Bandari. Tusker was too hot to handle for relegation-threatened Shabana.

Match week 21 of the Football Kenya Federation Premier League (FKFPL) was not as dramatic as expected. Most of the clubs including Nairobi City Stars, Posta Rangers, Sofapaka and AFC Leopards picked up narrow wins or played to barren draws.

The Robert Matano-led Tusker FC side is the only club in the league that managed to run riot over their opponents. Ingwe’s win came at the expense of Murang’a Seal, whose problems seem to be getting worse each weekend.

The central region-based side has now gone 11 matches without registering a win in the topflight league. Here is a wrap of all the action witnessed in FKFPL match week 21.

K’Ogalo tried their best to penetrate Ulinzi Stars defense in a match staged at the Machakos Stadium but their efforts were fruitless. Despite the disappointing draw, the record FKFPL champions remained at the helm of the FKFPL table with 44 points.

On the other hand, Ulinzi Stars climbed to the 11th position, a point above Murang’a Seal. The Nicholas Muyoti-coached side defeated the coastal-based club 0-1 at the Mbaraki Grounds in Mombasa County.

The goal which came in the first half of the thrilling encounter was scored by Vincent Owino with the assist coming from Robinson Asenwa. The massive win took Nairobi City Stars’ tally to 37 points, seven behind leaders and title favorites Gor Mahia.

Tusker FC walloped the Kisii-based side 4-0 in a one-sided match to increase their chances of lifting the FKFPL trophy this season. The win helped the former FKFPL champions climb up to fourth in the log with 34 points ahead of the crunch clash against KCB FC slated for Saturday, February 18.
