Kenya Commercial Bank FC missed out on the chance to top the Kenya Premier League table after they played out to a barren draw against Gor Mahia FC on Sunday.

The draw means that the bankers remain in second place with 58 points, level with league leaders Tusker FC.

The reigning champions Gor moved up to sixth place on the log after the draw, with a chance at retaining the title long gone.

Tusker got back to winning ways with a great 2-1 comeback win over Sofapaka, courtesy of goals from Rodgers Aloro and an 81st minute Jackson Macharia winner.

The two-horse race for the title remains heated with both teams opening up an 11-point gap between them and their closest challengers.

AFC Leopards reclaimed their familiar third place on the table after an impressive 3-1 win against bottom club Vihiga United on Saturday.

Club top scorer Elvis Rupia, Austin Odhiambo and Peter Thiong’o were on target for Leopards, who have not won a league title since 1998.

Hot on their heels are Bandari FC on fourth, who battled to a 2-1 win to dislodge Kakamega Homeboyz from the KPL top five.

Nairobi City Stars, Gor and Kariobangi Sharks are all tied on 44 points after they all failed to win over the weekend.

Clifford Alwanga and David Otieno ensured that Mathare United were 2-0 winners against the in-form City Stars, putting a two-point cushion between them and the relegation zone.
