Action between Tusker and Leopards/Photo/Tusker FC

Tusker came into this tie missing six players through injury, suspension and injury but that mattered little as their bright start was eventually rewarded in the 18th minute when Onyango connected with Humphrey Mieno's delivery to grab the opener.

Well, that's the feeling here at Michezo Afrika after the brewers hit AFC Leopards 2-0 in Friday's solitary FKF Premier League clash in Thika. A double from Chrispinus Onyango secured all three points for Robert Matano's charges as they avenged their first leg loss to Leopards and went seven points, accumulating 54 points from 25 outings. Second placed KCB, currently on 47 points from 23 outings play Wazito in Saturday action.

Tusker came into this tie missing six players through injury, suspension and injury but that mattered little as their bright start was eventually rewarded in the 18th minute when Onyango connected with Humphrey Mieno's delivery to grab the opener.

Leopards missed a goal scoring opportunity, Bieneuve Shaka missing a gilt edged opportunity, fumbling his final delivery in front of Emery Mvuyekure in the Tusker goal.
