Defender Lloyd Wahome and striker Allan Wanga have been at the center of Tusker FC’s push for their first Kenyan Premier League (KPL) title in four years and their performances have earned rewards from the club’s management.
The Brewers sit pretty at the zenith of the KPL log, four points clear of second-placed reigning champions Gor Mahia, and they are also in the GOtv Shield semifinals. Both Wanga and Wahome have been playing their roles almost to a fault in the opposite sides of the pitch.
It comes as a little surprise that the duo are the latest recipients of the player of the month awards, Wanga winning the August one and Wahome for September.
Defender Wahome only got his break into the first team following the injury to Ugandan Martin Kiiza and he has used the opportunity to perfection, churning out one sturdy performance after another at the heart of the defence alongside his captain James Situma, the inaugural winner of the award.
Wanga on the other hand has showed why the Brewers rushed for his signature during the mid-season transfer window in June. Four goals in seven league appearances and two others in the Shield only tell half the story in what has been a successful return to his former club.
A trophy and Kshs. 50,000 each they received during the award ceremony held at their training base in Ruaraka.
The Brewers will travel to Nakuru later today ahead of their Shield semifinal match against KCB set for the Afraha Stadium this Saturday, October 1 at 1pm.
