Heading to the game, Gor were four points behind Posta who beat Shabana 3-1 on Saturday in Machakos to arrest their three-game win-less streak.

Defending champions Gor Mahia moved to a point within the reach of log leaders Posta Rangers following their 2-0 win over Muhoroni Youth in Kisumu on Sunday.

Heading to the game, Gor were four points behind Posta who beat Shabana 3-1 on Saturday in Machakos to arrest their three-game win-less streak.

Gor were also bidding to get back on track after reaping barren draws against Kenya Police and Murang'a Seal in their last two outings.

Goals from Benson Omala and Chris Ochieng handed Gor maximum points and at the same time  condemned Muhoroni to their sixth defeat of the season.

Seal who were also looking to draw to a point within Rangers had an afternoon to forget after falling 2-1 to KCB at the St. Sebastian Park.

The result saw Seal taste defeat for the first time in the season while playing in front of home fans. It was also their third loss of the season.

KCB who have moved to third with 22 points, three off Rangers got their goals through Francis Kahiro and Kenyan international Hannif Wesonga.

Batts Awita pulled one back for the hosts deep into stoppage time.

Nzoia Sugar suffered the seventh defeat in the season after surrendering 3-1 to Kenya Police at Sudi Stadium.

David Okoth, David Ochieng and Tito Okello were all on target for Police who placed ninth on the log after licking the goodness of Nzoia Sugar.

Joseph Oyugi managed the consolation goal for the host who are the second team with most defeats after Sofapaka.

 

At Ulinzi Sports Complex, Kakamega Homeboyz needed a late goal from Oscar Adam Paul to beat Ulinzi Stars 1-0.

The Tanzanian forward poked home a loose ball from close range to see Homeboyz register three wins in as many matches.

The result means that Ulinzi have also lost three succesive matches and haven't scored in more than 270 minutes.
