Kisumu All Stars defeated visiting Coast Stima 1-0 in a tight National Super League match played at Moi Stadium on Friday to keep pace with Wazito.

Speaking after the match, team coach Frank Oduor praised his charges for not giving up despite missing many chances of winning by a larger margin.

“We defended and played well today and am happy that we are back to winning ways despite the low score. All tha5t was important was to secure all three points and am glad we did that,” Oduor said in post-match interview.

At Thika Stadium, Bidco United defeated Modern Coast Rangers 3-0 to move above FC Talanta into sixth with 55 points.

Michael Owino netted a double with Nelson Chieta notching home the third as Bidco continued with their free-scoring run, having now scored seven goals in two matches.
