In Summary
  • Shabana had won all their five home matches before Kenya Police handed them their first home beating.
  • In their next match on Wednesday, Shabana will play APS Bomet in Kericho while Kenya Police will invite Vihiga Bullets.

Shabana lost their first match at home this season after they were edged out 2-1 by visiting Kenya Police in their National Super League match at the Gusii Stadium on Saturday.

Shabana had won all their five home matches before Kenya Police handed them their first home beating.

Coached by young tactician Andrew Kanuli, who is making a comeback after a brief stint at Nzoia Sugar, Shabana have registered four losses, one win and two draws in their away matches.

All the three goals of the match were scored in first half with David Okiki and David Oruoch scoring for the victors while the only goal for the hosts was netted by Ivorian Traore Aboue.

This was Kenya Police's fifth win in a row, an indication that they are determined to seal promotion at the end of the season.

Kanuli attributed the defeat to laxity from his defenders whom he said were unable to control easy passes and had poor communication.

“We dominated the game in the first fifteen minutes but regrettably my boys were unable to convert scoring opportunities,” he said.

He noted that the club suffered a major setback as they lacked services of their right back Steve Ogati who is out with injury.
