Coast Stima utilised their home advantage to thrash Kenya Police 7-0 as leaders Nairobi City Stars maintained their six-point lead at the helm of the Betika Super League.

Stars defeated St Joseph Youth 2-0 at Camp Toyoyo. Stima’s win saw them move 10th in the standings with 23 points as Police dropped to 13 with 20 points.

This was coach Paul Ogai's seventh win of the season after a slow start to the league.

Ogai credited the win to hard work and unmatched home support from their fans.

“We have been working as a united team and training hard after each game and we hope to maintain the winning form. The fans were great and we hope to continue winning,” the former Western Stima tactician said.
