Defending champions Gor Mahia resumed the Football Kenya Federation Premier League with a win after narrowly defeating 10-man Nairobi City Stars 1-0 at Utalii Grounds on Sunday.

Burkina Faso import Karim Abdul scored the only goal of the match in the opening half as the champions held on to bag their seventh win of the season.

Victory propelled K'Ogalo to sixth in the league standings with 22 points, 12 points adrift leaders Tusker while City Stars remained 11th with 17 points.

Abdul’s goal came in the 30th minute after Clifton Miheso's cross presented him with a tap in off the post with City Stars stopper Steve Njunge nowhere to be seen.

Despite City Stars striker Eric Ombija sending off in the 74th minute, Gor Mahia could not do any more damage in the remaining 16 minutes of the match with City Stars defense repelling all attacks.

Clifton Miheso was voted the Man of the Match.

In Wundanyi, 2009 champions Sofapaka defeated Wazito 2-0 to move up to the bottom half table from their previous 13th place.

Nicholas Omondi and former Gor Mahia midfielder Lawrence Juma’s goals in the final half were enough to hand Kennedy Odhiambo his fifth win of the campaign.

The win saw Batoto ba Mungu moved to ninth on the log with 19 points, while Wazito dropped to seventh with 22 points.

At Ruaraka, bottom placed Mathare United were held to a barren draw with Vihiga United.
