Nairobi - Former champions, Sofapaka are not deterred by the loss of the league title to Gor Mahia but are determined to finish the campaign with many points as possible.
The side regained its position on the log behind new champions, Gor Mahia, in the Tusker Premier League with an emphatic win over four-time league champions Ulinzi Stars at the Nairobi City Stadium. The 3-0 win catapulted Sofapaka to 46 points.
Abaluhya Football Club, who dropped points during their last match, follow closely with two points less.
Sofapaka’s fortunes changed immensely as the win came on the back of two losses to the new champions and AFC Leopards.
“The aim is to continue working hard to regain our best form. From this win, we have picked some confidence and now we want to wrap up the season on a high by winning the two remaining matches,” the club’s head coach, Bob Mugalia, said following the victory on Monday.
Gor Mahia wrapped up the title after the local football mother body awarded the club three points from an abandoned match the team played against Sony Sugar.
The latter was found liable for the chaos that led to the recent abandoning of the match at the 84th minute.
