Jesse Were 20th league goal was enough for the brewers’ to register their first league win in seven matches
Tusker FC bounced back to winning ways after edging out Sony Sugar 1-0 in a SportPesa Premier League match played at Awendo Green Stadium on Wednesday.
Stand in coach Leonard Odipo started his first league game with a win following the departure for coach Francis Kimanzi who step aside, Jesse Were’s 72nd minute strike was enough to hand the brewers’ their first win in seven games as Sony Sugar recorded their second loss in eight league outings.
Were could have given his side the lead after just ten minutes, however he just directed the ball towards Allan Owiny in goal after a fine cross by Clifford Alwanga.
The result pushes Tusker up who now leapfrog AFC Leopards to position six with 41 points on the Kenyan Premier League [KPL] table. SQUADS
