Wazito maintained their pole position at the helm of the National Super League after being held in a goalless draw by second-placed Ushuru at Camp Toyoyo on Wednesday to complete a massive seven stalemates recorded in the mid-week matches across the country.

The draw took Fred Ambani’s team 51 points after 24 matches, two more than Ushuru and Nairobi Stima tied at 49 points.

Administration Police played a 3-3 draw against Fortune Sacco as Talanta became the only team to win their match at Camp Toyoyo which hosted three games.

Anthony Gicho and Brian Juma first-half strikes were enough to hand Abdallah Juma side an important victory after previously going down 3-1 to Coast Stima in Mombasa.

In Kisumu, Nairobi City Stars held host Kisumu All Stars to a 1-1 draw at Moi Stadium. City Stars looked set to break Frank Oduor’s long home unbeaten record in the super league when Peter Mwangi gave the visitors a 1-0 halftime lead.

However, Ian Mutanda’s second half dipping header ensured they shared the spoils and also maintaining their home record.

In Gusii, Kibera Black stars Filbert Ochieng's extra time equalizer denied Gilbert Selebwa's side victory in a 1-1 draw with Shabana.

Nairobi Stima were also held to a barren draw by Kenya Police as Bidco United played 1-1 against Kangemi All-Stars.

Thika United, however, defeated Green Commandos 1-0 at Thika Stadium thanks to Peter Mwaniki’s second half penalty.
