KPL Takes a break as Gor Mahia seats at the top of the table

By Bwire Marvin.

Gor Mahia sit atop the Kenya Premier League table as the sides goes for a three week recess after chalking up interesting results in round 13 of matches. Chemelil Sugar’s 2-1 win over Ulinzi Stars and a similar result registered by Nakumatt against Mathare United will provide some talking points. Until Saturday, Ulinzi Stars had picked four wins in a row and were expected to easily dispatch the Sugar Millers who have been struggling since the season started.

However, goals by Jaffery Odeny and Victor Majid made it impossible for the soldiers to come back into the match. Even a late Oscar Wamalwa goal could not help the soldiers who moved down to third on the log. Mathare United were expected to bounce back to winning ways against the less experienced Nakumatt side but the shoppers surprised the slum boys with a 2-1 win.

As the league takes a break, it is expected that United will beef up their squad with experienced players otherwise they will start worrying about relegation. Going seven matches without winning is a particularly long time in football especially for a team that desires to be champions. Yet, AFC Leopards, one of the most successful clubs in Kenya, has still gone without victory.

On Sunday, the club lost 1-0 to champions Tusker at the newly refurbished Kinoru Stadium in Meru. As Hall departs the club this week, he leaves a club struggling with a confidence crisis which the new coach has to work on if the team is to rebound from their position.
