Kenya Police are having it rough in the premier league after losing their second consecutive game in a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Nairobi City Stars in their FKF Premier League match played at Kasarani Annex on Saturday.

Police who were promoted to the top flight league this year had lost 1-0 to Kakamega Homeboyz during the opening match of the season and needed a win especially after roping in new stars in former AFC Leopards striker Mark Makwatta and former Gor Mahia star Clifton Miheso.

Timothy Ouma and Ezekial Odera first half strikers were enough to hand Simba wa Nairobi all three points and bounce back to winning ways after last month’s 3-1 disappointing defeat at the hand of Sofapaka

In Thika, Ulinzi Stars narrowly defeated hosts Mathare United 1-0. Clinton Omondi struck in the 72nd minute as Ulinzi maintained their 100% start to the new season.

The victory saw the soldier join Bandari at the top of the standings with six points though with an inferior goal difference of two goals.

Earlier, KCB were held to a 0-0 draw by AFC Leopards in an early-kickoff match played at Thika Stadium.

The bankers drew blanks despite creating a host of chances in the match as Ingwe’s bid to catch up with leaders Bandari went up in smokes.

The draw leaves Leopards joint second in the log with four points after two matches alongside Sofapaka.

The Bankers went into the game on the back of their 2-1 defeat to Gor Mahia in their season opener before the Fifa international break while Ingwe had shocked champions Tusker 1-0.
