FKF ruling boosts Gor Mahia’s title aspirations

10 September 2013, 13:57

Nairobi - Gor Mahia’s title aspirations have received a major boost after they were awarded three points from the abandoned match against rivals Sony Sugar.

The Football Kenya Federation (FKF) ordered the Kenya Premier Soccer League to award Gor Mahia the full set of points.

The match had ended in a 2-2 draw at the Awendo Green Stadium on September 1.

The fiercely contested match was abandoned in the 84th minute when Gor Mahia, who last won the title in 1995, grabbed their second goal.

Sony Sugar disputed the goal, claiming it had hit the bar but not crossed the line, resulting in violence and the assault of match officials.
The resultant awarding of the match as a win would boost Gor Mahia’s points tally by two.

It would stretch their lead to 44 points, nine more than second-placed Sofapaka with eight games remaining.

On the other hand, the FKF ruling worsens Sony sugar’s woes, pushing them down the relegation zone.

It could not be ascertained what action would be taken against a player and official who allegedly attacked the match officials.
