Nairobi - Defending champions of the Kenyan Premier League KPL Gor Mahia have, for the first time this season, shot straight to top spot in
the log following their 3-0 drubbing of hapless Muhoroni Youth at Nairobi City
Gor Mahia displaced the then log leaders - Tusker
Football Club, who narrowly lost 0-1 to Chemelil Sugar courtesy of a solitary
goal by Innocent Wafula in the dying moments of the game played at at Ruaraka
Gor are now leading the 16-team league log standing with
20 points from 10 games played so far.
The then early log leaders Tusker have been displaced to
the third position following their defeat by Chemelil Sugar, who eventually
occupied the second spot.
Chemelil Sugar are on second spot with 18 points from 10
games played while third placed Tusker share the same number of points, but are
on third position by goal difference.
Former champions AFC Leopards are 11th on the log with 11
points from 10 games played to date, a development that left them with slim
chances of claiming this year's premiership title.
While AFC Leopards are battling to put their house in
order, the top 10 clubs in KPL ahead of the weekend comprise Gor Mahia,
Chemelil Sugar, Tusker, Sofapaka, Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA), Thika United,
Sony Sugar, Western Stima, Muhoroni Youth and Bandari FC.
Clubs struggling to escape the relegation at the end of
the season will feature former champions AFC Leopards on 11th position while
City Stars are on 12th position with 11 points followed by Ulinzi Stars
with 10 points from 10 matches, Mathare United, KCB and Top Fry Nakuru
anchoring the log with four points from 10 games.
While most pundits ruled out Gor from retaining their
championship, the Kenyan football giants proved everyone wrong as they lifted
their spirit to claim the top spot.
