Chemelil hold Sofa in Machakos to widen relegation gap

Chemelil Sugar drew 0-0 with Sofapaka FC in a round 32 Kenyan Premier League (KPL) tie played on Wednesday 22 May at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos to claim a vital point that sees them move three points clear above the drop zone.

The millers, lying in 15th place, moved up to 31 points after securing their second successive 0-0 draw.

That three point advantage though could be wiped out if 16th placed Zoo FC claim a win against Tusker at the Ruaraka grounds on Thursday.
