Gor Mahia FC continued their march towards defending their title in the Football Kenya Federation Premier League (FKFPL) with a 1-0 win over AFC Leopards in the Mashemeji derby at Nyayo National Stadium. The winning goal was scored by Austine Odhiambo after a mistake by the AFC Leopards’ goalkeeper Levis Opiyo. Odhiambo capitalized on a costly error from Opiyo, redirecting the ball into the net in the 30th minute of the match, sending Gor Mahia supporters into a frenzy.

This put Gor Mahia in a nine-point lead with seven games remaining in the league. AFC Leopards had missed a golden opportunity to take the lead when Jaffari Owiti’s effort hit the goal post, causing disbelief among their fans. Shortly after, Gor Mahia’s custodian Kevin Omondi received a straight red card for preventing a clear goal-scoring opportunity.

Despite being reduced to 10 men, Gor Mahia managed to secure the narrow win and claim bragging rights. Gor Mahia’s victory increased their tally to 57 points, nine more than second-placed Police FC, while AFC Leopards remained stuck in eighth position with 38 points from 27 matches. In other fixtures, Tusker FC secured a 1-0 victory against Ulinzi Stars, and Murang’a Seal and Muhoroni Youth shared a draw at the SportPesa Arena, with the Brewers’ goal coming from Erick Kapaito shortly after the start of the second half.
