Kenya Police will have to wait a bit longer for their first win of the 2019/2020 National Super League season after playing out to a 1-1 draw with Mount Kenya United at the Camp Toyoyo on Wednesday.

After a goalless first half, Peter Njoroge opened the scoring for Police but Clement Masiko levelled matters for Mt Kenya in stoppage time to ensure a share of the spoils. Police lost 2-1 to Nairobi Stima in their first game of the season and lost by a solitary goal to Fortune Sacco in their second outing.

Head coach Charles “Korea” Omondi is however optimistic his side will find the elusive win when they take on Migori Youth in a round 3 clash in Naivasha on Monday.

“We were clearly the best team and deserved to win. It hurts to concede in the dying minutes of the match after putting all the effort to bag the three points but we will not give up yet. We shall regroup and hopefully get the three points against Migori,” said Omondi.

“A number of my players have picked up knocks and I hope they are not serious. We shall review within the week and I wish to have a full squad to face Migori Youth on Monday. It is a must win match for us,” he added.

Elsewhere, Nakuru-based side St Joseph Youth failed to travel to Kisii to honour a match against Shabana.
