Gor Mahia rebounded off winning paths with a convincing 3-1 win Mathare United in football Kenya Federation Premier League (FKF) match played on Thursday at Kasarani stadium.

Charles Momanyi, Kenneth Muguna and Alphonse Onyango scored for K’Ogalo while Dani Lual scored Slum Boys consolation

The defending champions entered the game targeting maximum points after back-to-back losses against Tusker FC and Kariobangi sharks respectively. The team had managed to get just three points out of the three games they had initially played.

For the 2008 champions, it was their second league assignment. They started their season with a 4-2 away loss Sofapaka at Wundanyi Stadium and needed at least one point against their hosts.

It only took the hosts three minutes to score their first goal. The Slum Boys conceded a corner corner in the third minute and Clifton Miheso took it. Momanyi was in a good position and wasted no time in tying it up and easing the pressure on his team.

K’Ogalo kept pushing for the second goal to increase his chances of winning the game. They were finally rewarded in the 16th minute when captain Muguna doubled the advantage.

The creative midfielder was let loose in the danger zone and unleashed a low training that was too much for Job Ochieng to handle.

Mathare coach Salim Ali was forced to replace Tyson Otieno for Daniel Otieno after half an hour in his attempt to destabilize his team.

Half-time ended with a 2-0 lead over the hosts.

Other changes were made by visitors after the break. Lennox Ogutu and Dani Lual were introduced in place of Alphonse Ndonye and Eugene Luthuli.

In the 73rd minute, Chris Oduor suffered a foul in the danger zone and the referee had no choice but to award the Slum Boys a penalty. Lual halved the deficit.

But hopes of a comeback sank when Onyango scored Gor Mahia’s third and recorded his second win in four league games.

The forward received the ball from Muguna before passing defenders and shooting home.
