Tusker Football Club, once a formidable force in the FKF Premier League, is beginning to rediscover its winning formula.

The brewers extended its unbeaten run to four matches in a thrilling encounter on Wednesday, narrowly defeating Bidco United 3-2 in a rescheduled match.

This victory marks a significant turnaround for a team that struggled to find consistency in the early stages of the season.

The star of the match was double Golden Boot award winner Eric Kapaito, whose scoring prowess was on full display as he netted a brace to propel Tusker to victory.

Kapaito's performance is a beacon of hope for the team, showcasing the potential for a strong comeback in the league.

With this latest triumph, Tusker ascended to the 11th spot in the league standings, amassing 19 points. They now sit just five points shy of the top four, a promising sign considering their earlier struggles.

The team's resurgence is noteworthy, especially given their unsteady start to the season, where they managed only three wins in their first ten matches, suffering five losses and settling for two draws.

The team's upward trajectory began on November 11, with a convincing 3-1 victory over Nairobi City Stars. This was followed by goalless draws against AFC Leopards and Posta Rangers, hinting at a newfound stability in their gameplay.

Tusker's recent performances have sparked discussions about their potential to climb even higher in the rankings and challenge the top four teams.

Currently, Gor Mahia leads the league with 28 points, closely trailed by Kakamega Homeboyz with 27.

Tusker's resurgence in form raises the question: Can they maintain this momentum and bridge the gap to the league leaders? Only time will tell, but for now, Tusker's fans and players can savor the sweet taste of a comeback in the making.
