Premiership race thrown wide open
09 June 2014, 10:24
Nairobi - The race for the Kenya Premier League title has been thrown wide open following the rejuvenated AFC Leopards thrashing defending champions Gor Mahia 1 - 3 in a derby encounter at Nyayo National Stadium.
Following the turn of events, it is no longer certain that log leaders Gor Mahia would walk away with the premiership title at the end of the season as any of the top 11 stand a chance of claiming the league championship.
Resurgent Leopards are back in with a shout.
As Gor floundered, second-placed Tusker did themselves a huge favour when they massacred hapless Mathare United 3-0 at Kinoru Stadium in Meru on Sunday to reduce Gor’s lead by two points.
Tusker have regained the much needed form at the right time as the league enters second round.
Tusker, who appear to be the much transformed soccer side at the moment, alongside AFC Leopards, are leaving no stone unturned in their quest to win the league title.
Other top 11 clubs with a mathematical chance of winning the league title include third-placed Sofapaka, who edged Kenya Commercial Bank (KCB) 1-0 while fourth positioned Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) are still in the race with 23 points from 14 league matches they have featured in.
Fifth-placed Chemelil Sugar, alongside, Muhoroni Youth, Sony Sugar, Thika United, Western Stima, Ulinzi Stars and the rejuvenated Leopards have mathematical chances of landing the premiership title provided they stop unnecessarily dropping crucial points.
