Who can stop Gor Mahiaâs march to the Kenya Premier League ( KPL) title?

The team proved that they are serious contenders for the local title after stopping pace-setters Tusker 2-1 at the weekend in another upset of the league.

The win was the third major victory for Gor, who just a month ago, were struggling to win matches forcing the exit of veteran coach James Sianga who âtook a breakâ

It came after victories against champions Mathare United and Sony Sugar and has raised the clubâs profile even as the league takes a one-month break this weekend.

The result proved right the prediction by Gor coach Gideon Ochieng that they can win the league.

If the former champions can stop Bandari this Saturday, they will finish the first leg in the top five position from where they can launch a serious bid for the title at the start of the second leg.

For Tusker, the loss brought to a screech their great form over four weekends that had put them at the top of the standings for two consecutive weeks in what is turning out to be a competitive league.

Back to the top

Sofapaka move back to the top of the league, thanks to a 2-1 win over hard-fighting Agro-Chemicals at Nyayo National Stadium on Saturday.

The current leaders, who enjoy a two-point lead over second-placed Tusker, should count themselves lucky for coming off with all three points.
