Bandari FC maintains lead on KPL standings

Written By: Richard Munga


Bandari FC still tops the Kenya Premier League standings, despite being held to a barren draw at home against Mathare United in a League match played at the Mbaraki stadium, Mombasa Saturday.

A win against Mathare United would have seen Bandari extend their lead on the Kenya Premier League standings but that was not to be as a resilient Mathare side, under the tutelage of Francis Kimanzi, kept the Dockers at bay in their own backyard.
