Round 12 of the National Super League (NSL) continued on Sunday 15 April with four games played out across different parts of the country.

Three of the four matches ended in draws with the match between Coast Stima and GFE 105 at the Mbaraki Sports Club failling to take place due to the latter's failure to show up for the fixture.

Tough times

GFE have endured a tough tenure in the second division due to financial struggles and their lack of honouring Sunday's fixture could be as a result of this.

The scenario sees Stima awarded three points plus two goals which sees them move up to 19 points, eight behind table toppers Western Stima while GFE remain second from bottom with five points.

Three draws

Elswhere at the Hope Centre in Kawangware, hosts Kibera Blackstars lost more ground in the title race as they were held to a 0-0 draw by visiting Talanta FC.

In Karuturi, hosts Kenya Police dropped points against fellow law enforcers Administration Police as they played out to a 1-1 draw. Police still remain unbeaten and in the frame for promotion to the top tier while the point sees AP add distance between them and the drop zone to three points. They now lie third from bottom with eight points.

In the earlier kickoff, Ushuru FC were also held to a 1-1 draw by visiting Kisumu Allstars at the Camp Toyoyo.

One win

Match day 12 has only seen one win, Western Stima's 2-1 win over KCB on Saturday.

The round will conclude on Monday with a clash between Green Commandos against Bidco United at the Bukhungu Stadium.
