Bandari on Sunday scrapped to a 1-0 victory over visiting Sony Sugar in a SportPesa Premier League match at Mbaraki Sports Club.

Internationally capped Anthony Kimani notched in the winner for the home team in the 15th minute through a powerful drive.

Bandari head coach Twahir Muhiddin was not impressed with the quality of the game, saying the team played below par.

“We were not our usual selves. Although we collected the three maximum points, I am not happy with our performance. I like my boys playing good football,” said Muhiddin.

Sony coach Leonard Odipo said his team repeated mistakes he had corrected.

“I prepared the team well but you’ve seen the problem is the striking force,” said Odipo, whose team suffered a third defeat from four matches.

The sugar millers are yet to win their first match of the season.
The game started at a slow pace with the visitors making good attempts in the seventh, 11th and 13th minutes. Bandari goalkeeper Wilson Obungu made daring saves.

Sony had chances to score through free kicks, but Obunga repulsed two brilliant shots by Victor Ayugi.

Bandari’s Dan Sserenkuma, who squandered a goal, was substituted barely a minute later. Muhiddin brought in George Abege.

Meanwhile, Ulinzi Stars showed their championship credentials to beat Ushuru 1-0 in another league clash at Ruaraka ground.

Ulinzi registered the winning goal in the 50th minute through a free kick by their led striker John Makwatta.
