The Kenyan Premier League match between AFC Leopards and KCB ended on a 2-0 scoreline in favour of the bankers.

Peter Wainaina set KCB on the way to a win with his fifth minute goal, after Clifford Alwanga set him up with a header, off a Patrick Matasi rebound following an initial Wainaina strike.

In the 42nd minute, Mungai Kiongera, KCB’s current top-scorer outran AFC defenders, at the same time avoiding an offside call, before releasing a powerful shot which landed in the net behind Matasi.

The teams went into the half-time break with KCB bearing a two-goal advantage.

Second half

Two minutes into the second half, AFC’s Paul Were made a run on the left with ball and shot into the box but keeper Adola punched it back into play, just in the nick of time.

AFC continued mounting pressure on the KCB but the latter settled into the match, eventually taking control of the match, with the ball-possession by the 56th minute reading 56%-44% in favour of the bankers.

After the match, AFC still top the league, while KCB have risen from 12th to ninth.
