The Slum Boys failed to trounce Ingwe despite having Kenyan International Jamal Mohammed at the heart of their midfield and 2008 golden boot winner Francis Ouma in their attack.
Ingwe appeared the better side from the onset making several positive moves but failed to convert them. The possession was however rather balanced as the match progressed.
Bageya, Mang’oli open accounts
Ugandan import Jimmy Bageya opened the accounts for Ingwe in the 30th
minute after capitalizing on a Joseph Ruto spill over after a counter attack.
The second half was action packed as thousands of fans most of them Ingwe supporters cheered on the teams. The Slum Boys however conceded the second only two minutes after the restart when Benard Mang'oli connected perfectly with an Allan Wanga cross to slot in from close range.
That seemed to have dampened the Mathare mood for sometime as they lost control of the midfield. Jamal Mohammed was substituted moments later for Anthony Khadudu.
Mathare later started fighting back but it proved a little too late as Ingwe defended well and the entry on Mike Baraza for Ingwe pushed back into their own defence.
Mathare have no points after losing both of their two opening matches.
