Luke Namanda scored a second-half brace as Tusker rallied from behind to beat struggling Kariobangi Sharks 3-1 in yesterday’s Kenya Premier League match at Kasarani Stadium.

The victory saw the second-placed brewers narrow the gap on league leaders Gor Mahia to a point (25) as Sharks remained stuck in the relegation zone.

Kevintom Machina had given William Muluya’s men the lead on the stroke of half-time, only for former Gor Mahia striker George Odhiambo to draw level in the 70th minute.

Namanda then got his name on the score sheet 10 minutes later after pouncing on a rebound before the former Nzoia Sugar man hit the final nail in Sharks’ casket three minutes to stoppage time.

In Mombasa’s Mbaraki Sports Club, Bandari ended their six-game winless run in the domestic league in style with a 4-1 thrashing of Wazito at Mbaraki Stadium. The Dockers had not won a league tie since getting a walkover against Chemelil Sugar on October 19.

Shaban Kenga scored a brace in the 27th and 80th minutes, with David Owino scoring an own goal. Yuma Mwana scored the fourth goal for the hosts.
