KCB & Police FC Stretch their Debilitating Winless Runs with Shared Spoils at Kasarani

Ten-man Kenya Police FC managed to salvage a point on Tuesday afternoon at the Kasarani Annex as they held last season’s runners up KCB to a 1-1 draw in the Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Premier League.

The top flight debutants started the match on the front foot, attacker David Simiyu latching on a loose ball from a howler by his former side to send Police FC into the lead just after four minutes.

Simiyu’s striker which resulted from a blunder by KCB defender Nahashon Alembi was painful for the Bankers to take as he only ditched them last month in the midseason transfer window in favour of the law enforcers.

Veteran tactician Bobby Ogolla guided his side into a 1-0 lead at the break and it was until the 49th minute when the visitors drew level thanks Samuel Mwangi’s striker.

KCB increased the onslaught on the hosts’ goal in search of a winner but Police held on thwarting all the attacks and even lost fullback Cornelius Juma to a red card for a rash challenge on James Mazembe in the penultimate minutes of the match.

Police FC are now winless in their last seven games despite having a busy January transfer window, and remain 13th on the FKF Premier League log with 24 points from 21 matches.

KCB who failed to record a win for a fifth straight game, are fifth on the log with 33 points having played the same number of games as Police FC.

In the second match at the same venue, defending champions Tusker condemned hosts Wazito to a 3-0 defeat to dislodge Nairobi City Stars from second place.
