Championship, relegation races hot up in KPL

26 May 2014, 12:33

Nairobi - The destiny of the Kenya Premier League (KPL) and the relegation dogfight are gradually taking shape with champions Gor Mahia sitting comfortably at the top of the standings and two sides seemingly doomed for the axe.

From the 13 league matches played to date, Gor Mahia lead the pack with 29 points while Tusker, Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) and Chemelil Sugar lie second, third and fourth positions with 24, 22 and 21 points respectively from the same number of league games contested.

While the four top teams continue to intensify domination of their pole positions, already, two clubs comprising Kenya Commercial Bank (KCB) and Top Fry Nakuru, look certain to face relegation at the end of the season as the duo managed only six points apiece from 13 league matches played.

This followed KCB's narrow 0-1 defeat at the hands of Sony Sugar in a league match played on Saturday at Awendo Green Stadium while Top Fry Nakuru did not help their cause when held 1-1 drew by Mathare United in a midweek match last Wednesday.

The two teams anchor the log with lowest points as the first round of the premiership comes to an end this weekend.

Other teams that promise they were still in the title race comprise Sofapaka, who lie on fifth position with 21 points, Muhoroni Youth on sixth with 19 points, Sony Sugar and Thika United sharing the seventh and eighth position with 18 points but separated by goal difference.

Vastly-improved Ulinzi Stars lie ninth with 17 points while Western Stima    are 10 with 16 while  11th placed AFC Leopards needs to pull up their socks in order to finish the league season on the top eight teams.

Mathare United, Bandari and City Stars lie 12th, 13th and 14th respectively while KCB and Top Fry Nakuru anchor the log table.
