Kepha Aswani was again on the money as his headed goal won the day for Thika United in their Kenyan Premier League clash with Karuturi Sports, Saturday 31 Stadium in Naivasha.
Aswani headed home a Clifton Miheso corner after 75 minutes to seal the three points and fourth place in the league.
It was a poor display from Micheal Nam's Karuturi, who looked off colour and devoid of ideas throughout.
The first half was a slow affair, Jacob Omondi wasting the best chance for the flower men; heading straight at Thika goalie Lucas Indeche after Allan Otindo had supplied him with a delicious cross.
Thika on the other hand looked threatening in attack, with the lively Francis Kahata and the inform Aswani looking to pounce whenever the opportunity came.
After dominating for long spells, head coach John Kamau must have known the game was there for the taking and he sent out his side in the second half with instructions to attack.
Karuturi, despite being the home team looked out of sorts and Thika took advantage, pushing men forward in droves to try nick a goal.
Chances in the duration of the second half though fell to Thika, Aswani and Miheso failing to convert when put through. However, the goal would not be long coming.
The territorial advantage Thika had gained resulted in numerous corners and they finally took advantage of one, Miheso's lovely ball headed home by Aswani.
Despite being a goal down, Karuturi lacked urgency in their play, meaning the visitors held their lead comfortably to conclusion.
Karuturi drop to ninth in the league standings.
