Elvis Rupia scored his 17th goal of the season as AFC Leopards rallied from behind to hold KCB to a 1-1 draw in the midweek FKF Premier League match played at Thika Stadium on Wednesday.

Samuel Mwangi gave title hopefuls KCB a narrow first half 1-0 lead after scoring in the 23rd minute.

The game was playing out in favour for the bankers until late in the second half when Rupia broke the banker’s hearts after levelling in the 75th minute to ensure Leopards share the spoils with KCB.

The stalemate left the bankers three points behind leaders Tusker who also dropped points after being held to a barren draw by Nzoia Sugar in Bungoma.
