Golden Boot race heats up as Umaru Kasumba closes in on Allan Wanga
With just three games left for the season to end, the top three contenders for the Kenyan Premier League Golden Boot are separated by a goal each, this is after Umaru Kasumba scored against Nzoia Sugar over the weekend.
Nzoia looked on course for another big scalp after beating Gor Mahia in a mid-week clash but Kasumba's leveler in the 77th minute ensured Sofapaka picked up a point. The goal stretches his season tally to 17 goals just one goal shy of Allan Wanga's 18 goals. Enosh Ochieng' is hot on the heels of the Ugandan forward with 16 goals, with his form earning him a call up in the Harambee Stars provisional squad for the African Cup of Nations.
