In a weekend filled with twists and turns in the FKF Premier League, leaders Gor Mahia stumbled after a thrilling 2-2 draw with relegation-threatened Nzoia Sugar.
While Gor fought back from a 2-0 deficit, the dropped points allowed Kakamega Homeboyz to close in, securing their second spot with a fifth consecutive win, a decisive 2-0 triumph over Shabana.
Meanwhile, AFC Leopards’ woes persisted as they suffered their fifth defeat of the season, losing 2-1 to 10-man Bidco United.
Gor Mahia’s Comeback Salvages a Point
Record Kenyan champions Gor Mahia faced a tough challenge on Saturday, having to claw back from a 2-0 deficit against Nzoia Sugar, a club ranked second-last in the standings. The 2-2 draw denied Gor Mahia the opportunity to open a three-point gap at the top, allowing their pursuers to narrow the distance.
Homeboyz’s Resurgence Continues
Kakamega Homeboyz continued their remarkable resurgence with a commanding 2-0 victory over Shabana on Sunday. This fifth consecutive win propelled them into second place with 27 points, just one point adrift of the league leaders. The fine run of form, including five wins in their last five matches, has elevated Homeboyz into serious title contention.
AFC Leopards’ Struggles Persist Under Trucha
Meanwhile, AFC Leopards, under the leadership of Tomas Trucha, finds itself mired in a tough situation. Their fifth defeat of the season came in a 2-1 loss to 10-man Bidco United, exacerbating concerns about the team’s performance under Trucha.
After replacing Tom Juma in October, Trucha is yet to prove himself, with a record of four draws, two losses, and one win. Presently, Ingwe is precariously positioned at 15th place, hovering just above the red zone with a meager 11 points from 14 games.
As the FKF Premier League unfolds, the title race intensifies, and the struggles of AFC Leopards add an extra layer of drama to the competition. Can Gor Mahia recover from their stumble, and will Kakamega Homeboyz maintain their impressive form to challenge for the top spot? The coming weeks promise more excitement and uncertainty in Kenyan football
