Homeboyz claim all spoils in Machakos

David Okoth (R) and Marvin Ongori vie for the ball in Kakamega Homeboyz' 3-1 win over Mathare United on Friday 29 November in Machakos.

An unfortunate outing on Friday saw us fall 3-1 at the hands of Kakamega Homeboyz in a KPL round 12 fixture played at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos.

Peter Thiong’o helped himself to a brace with a goal in each half with David Okoth adding a third late in the game. Substitute John Mwangi scored the consolation.

The afternoon was further made worse by the sending off of midfielder Roy Okal with 10 minutes left on the clock for two bookable offences.

The loss is our second this season and leaves us in 4th place with 17 points, though that is subject to change as the round is still in play.

Next up is an away tie to AFC Leopards on Sunday 8 December.

Below is how the lads lined-up in Machakos;

Starting XI: Job Ochieng (GK), Marvin Ongori, Harun Junior, Andrew Juma, David Owino, Roy Okal, Chris Oduor, Kevin Kimani, James Kinyanjui, Daniel Otieno, Clifford Alwanga

Subs: David Okello (GK), Francis Omondi, Dennis Otieno, Tyson Otieno, Chris Ochieng, John Mwangi, Alphonse Ndonye
