KPL: Nkata’s Tusker a Win Away to Championship Glory

Coach Paul Nkata is one victory away from a memorable double in Kenya following Tusker FC a 1-0 triumph over sugar millers Sony in Awendo on Saturday afternoon.

Noah Wanyonyi headed the goal mid first half in a match that featured all four Ugandans in the team including Martin Kiiza, price Hashim Sempala, Shafiq Batambuze and forward Robert Omunuk who was facing his immediate former pay masters.

The victory stabilized Tusker FC’s lead at the top and went seven up before Gormahia defeated Mathare United 2-1 on Sunday in Nairobi

Nkata’s brewers top the summit with 55 points, four ahead of three peat defending champions Gormahia with a chance of winning in case they defeat giants AFC Leopards next Sunday. The two giants meet in the last game of the season.

In the other games played, Nairobi City Stars -Paul Nkata’s former team- confirmed their relegation after losing 3-1 to Kakamega Homeboyz.

Ugandan trio Mathias Kigonya, Johnson Bagoole and Simon Okwil helped their ailing team Sofapaka FC to beat AFC Leopards 3-2. The result resurrected hopes of surviving the chop with only two games to close the chapter.
