10 man Nairobi Stima laboured to a 3-1 win over Administration Police as KCB also managed a third win in four games in FKF National Super League matches played this weekend. Ushuru had a bad day in office, falling 2-1 to St Joseph Youth

Nairobi Stima took to the pitch against Administration Police in a 2 pm kick off at Camp Toyoyo, with The Powermen looking to make clear their promotion intentions. They would, however, be dealt a blow when defender Sande Shela was sent off for a high challenge on AP’s Humphrey Alemba

Despite their numerical handicap, Stima took the lead a minute before halftime. Ivan Anguyo scored from the spot after Patrick Mugendi had been brought down inside the 18-yard box

On resumption, Stima added a second in the 58th minute through John Kangethe after a swift counter attack. AP would then half the deficit, substitute Calvin Osumba thumping in a strike from close range, but it is the Powermen who had the last laugh, sealing a hard fought win with a strike in stoppage time by Brian Mtiba. Stima is now second on the log with 50 points from 24 matches

Nairobi City Stars

In the second match played at the same venue, Nairobi City Stars’ run of seven matches without defeat came to an end after a 0-1 loss to visitors Nakuru All Stars. Debutant Sidney Lokale scored with 10 minutes on the clock to give All Stars a second win in three matches

KCB

On Saturday, KCB edged out Kenya Police 2-0 in a match played at Camp Toyoyo. Edwin Oduor and Simon Abuko were on target for The Bankers. KCB is now third on the log with 49 points, two more than fourth placed Ushuru, who have a game in hand

Ushuru went down 2-1 to visiting St Joseph Youth at Camp Toyoyo in the second match of the day. The Taxmen consequently dropped to fourth with 47 points from 23 matches
