Mathare United missed out on the chance to get back on top of the Kenya Premier League standings after they were held to a barren draw by Zoo FC at the Kericho Green Stadium.
Having been relegated into the 2nd position by Bandari FC on Saturday following The Dockers’ 1-0 win over Kariobangi Sharks, Mathare United were aware that a win against Zoo FC would propel them back into the top spot.
However, the Slum Boys were unable to break Zoo’s resilience, with the match ending in a goalless draw.
The result leaves the Francis Kimanzi coached side 2nd on the log on 26 points, two points behind Bandari, while Zoo slipped a spot down to 15th.
Meanwhile, Champions Gor Mahia ended Sofapaka’s seven-match unbeaten run with a 1-0 win against Batoto Ba Mungu in Nakuru.
The win leaves K’Ogallo 3rd on the log on 25 points, two ahead of Sofapaka.
Elsewhere at the Moi Stadium in Kisumu, Western Stima defeated bottom side Mt. Kenya United 2-1.
The win lifts Paul Ogai’s men up to 4th on the log with 23 points while MKU remain rooted at the bottom with nine points with the loss their ninth of the campaign.
