A lack of concentration in the final minutes has cost KCB dearly this season as they were again made to pay for their slack defending by Kakamega Homeboyz who scored late to secure a 1-1 draw in a round 26 Kenyan Premier League (KPL) encounter played at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos on Saturday 27 April.
The Bankers had led the tie since the second minute of play when Kennedy Owino scored with an exquisitely taken volley from a Benson Amianda cross but they were again denied all three points when substitute Edwin Lavatsa scored with three minutes remaining to extend KCB’s winless run now to five games.
This was the fourth time this season that Frank Ouna’s men had conceded late, they did it twice against Sofapaka and also against Western Stima in the first leg.
Against Sofapaka, KCB gave away two stoppage time penalties that saw them lose both games to Batoto Ba Mungu by similar 1-0 score lines and were denied a win against Stima after allowing the Kisumu based side to claim a point with another late strike.
Saturday’s draw against Homeboyz did however put to a halt a four game losing streak with the point seeing them maintain hold of 12th place now with 30 points.
Homeboyz on their part remain 4th with 42 points.
In the day’s early kick off, Nzoia Sugar claimed all three points in the Millers Derby by defeating Chemelil Sugar 2-1 at the Chemelil Sports Complex.
Jackson Dwang scored both goals for Nzoia to help credit new coach Godffrey Oduor with his first win since being appointed a fortnight ago.
