KPL Review: Ulinzi slows down Tusker, Homeboyz goes top as Wazito woes continue

The Kenyan Premier League table is shaping up with the league’s week 19 clashes giving us some mouthwatering spectacle.

Wazito finally managed to field midfielder Whyvonne Isuza three weeks after his signing but his presence didn’t prevent them from going down to Posta Rangers. Stewart Hall felt the referee wasn’t fair to his side in the tie but his winless outing with the team should be a worry for him.

Wazito problems look to be deep than just the playing unit. The players seemingly are giving their all and one wonders why the results have not been coming despite the investments they have and going by the type of top players they have at their disposal.

Kariobangi Sharks woes

The sorry form of Wazito has been the same story for Kariobangi Sharks. The William Muluya side has not been the same team this season and has struggled to kill teams. In the game against Kakamega Homeboyz, they surrendered a lead to lose the entire points; an outing that saw the visitors perch at the top of the log.

Of the teams leading, Tusker FC surge to lead the league was slowed down by Ulinzi Stars who held them to a 1-1 draw in an entertaining affair at the Nairobi’s Ruaraka Grounds. Tusker knows very well that they can't afford to drop more points if they are to replicate their 2016 outing.

Tusker draw was some music to Gor Mahia who once again reminded everyone that they were not done yet. The Steve Pollack charges made light work of Bandari FC who were having Twahir Muhiddin in the dugout for the first time since the departure of Bernard Mwalala. The game will well be remembered for a goal scored by goalkeeper David Mapigano.

It was Mapigano’s week as he managed to save a penalty just after he had put his side into the lead.
