The race for slots in the Kenyan Premier League just became tighter as all promotion hopefuls Nakumatt, Kariobangi Sharks and Vihiga United picked crucial away wins in games played on Sunday 13 November 2016.

Kariobangi Sharks beat hosts Oserian 1-0 as Nakumatt FC handed home team Agro Chemicals a 2-0 defeat at Furaha grounds in Muhoroni while Vihiga United smacked home team Palos FC 4-0 in Kisumu.

The wins followed up on Zoo FC’s 4-0 whitewash of Nakuru AllStars in an earlier game played on Saturday in Kericho.

Odongo show

Mathew Odongo was the chief destroyer as his 68th minute strike proved the separator at Oserian that extends the team’s unbeaten run in the NSL to 26 games.

In Muhoroni first half goals by Bernard Meki and John Njoroge in the 26th and 43rd minutes respectively were enough to hand the Shoppers their third straight win.

At the Moi Stadium in Kisumu nothing went to script for the hosts Palos as they were down 2-0 at half time before eventually falling 4-0

Chris Masinza and Amos Kigadi each scored once as Michael Misigo Isabwa grabbed a brace.

Catch up

KCB who were fourth going to the weekend drops to fifth as their round 34 game against Shabana, that was scheduled for Sunday in Kericho was moved to Monday under force majeure. It will be played on Monday from 11am.

A win over the basement side will see the team back at fifth spot.

Meanwhile, Nairobi Stima moved a place up to ninth above Agrochemicals after beating Ligi Ndogo 2 - 0 at Camp Toyoyo with goals from former Sofapaka man Patrick Mugendi on the 27th minute and Eugene Okoth on the 35th minute while at Kasarani, FC Talanta fell to MOSCA FC 3 - 0 with William Odero, Kwesi Dadzie and Dennis Ogolla scoring for MOSCA on the 25th, 35th and 75th minutes.
