Bidco United came from a goal down to win 2-1 against Mathare United in one of four BetKing Premier League matches played on Saturday, February 20, 2021. The win was Bidco’s third in a row.

Tyson Otieno had given Mathare United a sixth-minute lead after a swift counterattack by the 2008 champions. The first half ended 1-0.

In the 74th minute, however, Erick Gichimu powered a header onto the crossbar and into the net to make matters level after a well-taken corner kick by David Kalama.

As the match seemed headed for a share of the spoils, Mathare United goalkeeper Job Ochieng let a back pass slip through his legs, a mistake that gifted Bidco United all three points.
