Machakos tie against Rangers ends even

Chrispin Oduor (R) and Joseph Mbugi contest for the ball in Mathare United's 0-0 draw with Posta Rangers on November 1 2019

The lads played out a 0-0 draw on Friday against Posta Rangers in round 8 of the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos with the game characterized by a lack of sharpness in front of goal from Salim Ali’s charges.

Chris Ochieng, Tyson Otieno and Daniel Otieno all came close to breaking the deadlock and potentially seal the win but a less potent day in the office saw us share the spoils.

We remain unbeaten though despite the dropped points and now lie 9th on the standings with 11 points, that though is subject to change with the round still yet to conclude.

Friday’s game also saw a first start of the season for new signing Daniel Otieno as well as a debut for Lazaro Simba.

Attention now switches to our rescheduled round 7 tie against Gor Mahia that will be played on Wednesday.

Below is how the lads lined-up against Rangers;

Starting XI: Job Ochieng (GK), Martin Ongori, Harun Junior, Andrew Juma, David Owino, Roy Okal, Kevin Kimani, Tyson Otieno, Daniel Otieno, Clifford Alwanga

Subs: David Okello (GK), Lennox Ogutu, Dennis Ochieng, Lazaro Simba, James Mwangi, Chris Ochieng, Klinsman Omulanga
