AFC Leopards moved top of the Kenyan Premier League log despite drawing 0-0 with Ulinzi Stars in their midweek Kenyan Premier League match at the Machakos Stadium, Wednesday afternoon.

A resolute defensive performance from Salim ‘Shitu’ Abdalla and Robinson Kamura ensured Leopards took a point and a clean sheet while the Soldiers will feel a wee bit grateful to Gilbert Fiamenyo for his missed chances.

Leopards could have taken the lead inside two minutes but their two-goal striker Fiamenyo volleyed over with only Ulinzi keeper James Saruni to beat.

The visitors were to be given some reprieve when Saruni escaped a booking after he handled the ball just outside his box with the referee awarding no less than a freekick. Robinson Kamura, often deadly in such situations, stepped forward but directed his effort straight at the wall.

It was one moment in a good 10-minute spell for Leopards who had pinned the Soldiers in their own half but could not capitalize.

Evans Amuoka had Ulinzi’s best chance of the half when he beat Leopards’ offside trap but after advancing towards the danger zone, he opted to look for a teammate inside the box when having a go could have been the better option as Salim ‘Shitu’ Abdalla cleared the danger.

On the other end, Fiamenyo was presented with another chance as he robbed Geoffrey Kokoyo of the ball, rounded keeper Saruni but a moment of hesitation saw Brian Birgen made a timely interception and clear the ball for a corner which was wasted.

With the first half time running out, the Ghanaian thought he had given Ingwe the lead but he was correctly ruled offside, much to the disgust of the Leopards fans who were scarcely spread across the Machakos Stadium.

The one minute added time wasn’t just enough for any of the teams mount one more attack as they retreated to the dressing room evenly poised.

There was barely any goalmouth action in the next half hour save for a skied effort from substitute Andrew Tololwa who had replaced Marcellus Ingotsi before the restart.

Another substitute, Cliff Kasuti almost grabbed Ulinzi their opener and perhaps the winning goal when he met a deep cross from John Kago at the far post but Ian Otieno spread himself big and made the save.

Two minutes later, Fiamenyo stung Saruni’s palm with a ferocious right from drive, the keeper making his best save of the match. There was to be no goal though despite four minutes additional minutes as the duo settled for a point which they both deserved.

Kariobangi Sharks' rude welcome to the Kenyan topflight was extended by Ulinzi Stars at the Machakos Stadium this past Saturday the Soldiers nicking a 1-0 victory in their league encounter courtesy of Harambee Stars recruit Samuel Onyango.

Sharks went into the match at the back of two defeats in as many matches against Gor Mahia and Muhoroni Youth and their search for a first point on the topflight board was stretched by the perennial league participants.

The two sides battled evenly in a first half that produced no goals as Onyango and John Kago were both kept at bay by Sharks keeper Robert Mboya as Ulinzi's James Saruni was slightly underworked on the opposite end.

Churchill Muloma came close to grabbing the game's first goal but his effort was cleared off the line. Onyango made the breakthrough in the 70th minute when he lashed onto a long throw from fullback Omar Mbongi before volleying past Mboya.

William Muluya's Sharks had a go towards the end but they didn't create anything to beat Saruni and avoid a third defeat in as many matches.

AFC Leopards are facing an injury crisis ahead of their Kenyan Premier League encounter against Ulinzi Stars Wednesday (5) at the Machakos Stadium.

Ingwe, second on the log with a game in hand over leaders Bandari, host the Soldiers in a blockbuster midweek encounter with the duo yet to taste any defeat this season.

Leopards have received a boost after two-goal striker Gilbert Fiamenyo was passed fit. However, centerhalf Robinson Kamura will be unavailable due to injury while forward Paul Kiongera and Marcellus Ingotsi both have knocks and both face late fitness tests for the match.

Ulinzi on the other hand will also assess defender Mohammed Rio Hassan and midfielder Boniface Onyango. Hassan limped off injured in the 1-0 victory over Kariobangi Sharks, a match that Onyango was not involved in due to injury.

Leopards have not collected a league victory over Ulinzi since August 2013 when the Soldiers ended a 6-game losing run against the Stewart Hall-led side.

Ulinzi have won four of their last five league matches against Ingwe including a 2-0 victory in the corresponding fixture last season. Another victory for Ulinzi will put them joint second while success for Ingwe will put them top of the log.

Kenya international Clifton Miheso has filed a complaint to Fifa over his claim he was forced at gunpoint to end his contract with Golden Arrows.

Miheso alleges the incident took place on 14 January at the South African club's offices in Durban.

The 24-year-old is seeking a transfer ban or other sanction to be placed on Golden Arrows and also wants $22,000 he claims he is owed in wages, reports the BBC.

Golden Arrows denied the allegations and have since declined to comment.

The winger's legal representative says the club has failed to provide any satisfactory information about the incident.

Miheso has won 14 caps for Kenya and scored five goals.

AFC Leopards have dismissed reports that head coach Stewart Hall could be on his way out despite having been with the club for barely six months.

Hall, who penned a two-year contract with the 12-time Kenyan Premier League champions in October 2016, has been linked with a move to Tanzanian giants Yanga who are allegedly unhappy with their Zambian coach George Lwandamina.

However, the club insists that the former Saint Vincent and the Grenadines national football team head coach is going nowhere and has "a long-term project he is working on."

Leopards, on their Facebook page said: "The club wishes to assure it's members and fans that information given by a section of the media regarding the future of coach Stewart Hall is totally untrue, misguided and irresponsible.

"The coach has a long-term project he is working on and he has assured fans that he is happy to be at Ingwe.

"The focus is on the Ulinzi game on Wednesday where we plan to deliver 3 points and go top of the log.

Media outlets need to be honest and confirm such stories with the club."

Leopards have won their opening two league games of the new campaign, leaving them second on the log behind leaders Bandari who have played a game more.

They host Ulinzi Stars at the Machakos Stadium this Wednesday.

Former Football Kenya Federation President Sam Nyamweya has been slapped with a ten year ban from all football activities by the Federation’s National Executive Committee NEC.

The decision was arrived at after a NEC meeting held on 21st of March. Already a letter confirming the same sent to him.

In the letter, FKF says Nyamweya has violated Article 13(1) of the federation’s constitution by filing a petition in court that sought to stop them from carrying out their mandate. He was also accused of illegally withdrawing Ksh2.5 million from the Federation account that was destined for FKF Abadares branch.

Nyamweya in February had filed a case seeking orders to suspend the club licensing process introduced by the federation. He argued that there were a lot of shortcomings in the process arguing that the country risked losing including other benefits, the rights of the 2018 Continental African Nations Championship (CHAN).

 

He also sort to restrain current President Nick Mwendwa from discussing and interfering with the ownership, organization and running of the Kenyan Premier League limited (KPL).
