Defensive midfielder Fidel Origa scored the all-important goal for the dockers in the first half, opening his account at the club since joining from the defunct Wazito.

Gor Mahia have tasted their second league defeat of the season after falling 1-0 to Bandari at the Mbaraki Grounds.

Gor returned to the coast hoping to wipe the bad memories of their cup defeat to the little-known Denmak but instead, suffered yet another defeat, this round in the hands of Bandari.

Three weeks ago, K'Ogalo visited Denmak hoping to wipe the floor with them and advance to the round of sixteen but lost to the minnows on post-match penalties after a barren draw in regular time. 


Gor who were looking to stretch the gap at the summit to thirteen points got it rough at Bandari as the host dominated and secured maximum points for the first time since 2018.

Following the win, Bandari cut God's lead at the top to seven points and Tusker could add the pressure on back of Gor if they manage to beat AFC Leopards on Sunday.

At the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos, Bidco United needed the last kick of the game to salvage a point after holding Nairobi City Stars to a 1-1 draw.

City Stars led all the way to the last seconds of the game courtesy of Dennis Oalo's strike but Jacob Onyango rescued a point for Bidco after equalising at the death.

At the same venue, Murang'a Seal beat Sofapaka 2-1 to register their second win under coach Abdallah Juma.

Goals from Ally Yusuf and veteran striker John Kiplagat were enough to get Seal their eighth win of the campaign.
