Kenyan Premier League (KPL) giants AFC Leopards has a new
league record for consecutive unbeaten matches after the Sunday 8 April 6 – 2 whitewashing
of a troubled Rangers FC side.
The league leaders’ win at the Mumias Sports Complex not
only consolidated their place at the summit but also went one better of the
record of 21 unbeaten league matches that they were until yesterday jointly
holding with Mathare United.
Koops yet to fall
Mathare United established the feat in a run that started in
August 2001 up to February 2002 whereas AFC Leopards last lost a league game on
Sunday 24 July 2011, a 3 – 1 loss to Gor Mahia.
The Rangers FC win was also Dutch man Jan Koops’ 22nd
premier league game in charge and has not tasted defeat.
