Leopards go top after Oserian win
A goal in each half by Allan Wanga and Mike Barasa sent AFC Leopards to the top of the Kenya Premier League with seven points after crushing Oserian FC 2-0 at Nyayo National Stadium.
It is the first time that Leopards have been top of the league standings since making a comeback to the top flight in 2009.
Wanga opened the floodgates on 21st minute when he headed brilliantly a freekick taken by Charles Okwemba to send the home team fans wild on the terraces.
Barasa who came in as a second half substitute for Okwemba scored his first goal of the season on 84 minutes after being put through by Jimmy Bageya.
A serious injury suffered by defender Abbas Kiwalabye was the only blot in an otherwise perfect day for Leopards. He suffered a serious cut in his leg that required several stitches and will be out of action for several weeks.
Oserian however left with their heads held high after impressing with their display. They could have reduced the arrears in the dying minutes through John Kabui and Gordon Okoth who both saw efforts go narrowly wide.
