Kisumu All Stars returned to winning ways after thrashing Coast Stima 4-0 in a one-sided National Super League match played over the weekend.

The win saw the former FKF Premier League side revive their promotion hopes after moving to 10th in the standings with 37 points, 10 points behind the three promotion spots.

All-Stars have played 26 matches, four matches fewer than the current top three teams namely FC Talanta, Fortune Sacco, Kenya Police and Kibera Black Stars.

Victory in their four games in hand will propel the lakeside team to a place in the three promotion spots.

The victory saw Talanta open a six-point gap between them and Fortune Sacco with 57 points and a game in hand.

Shabana FC hopes of qualifying for the Premier League next season hit a snag after they lost 2-0 at home to APS Bomet.
