After sleeping over on Saturday with a ten-point cushion, Nairobi City Stars advantage atop the National Super League (NSL) dropped down to seven points following games played on Sunday 19 January 2020.

A 2-0 win over Vihiga Bullets at Camp Toyoyo, Jericho on Saturday left Simba wa Nairobi on 49 points from 20 games, ten off second placed Bidco United.

But 24 hours later it was status quo after Bidco came from behind at Thika Stadium to see off Migori Youth 2-1 to complete a double this season over their visitors. They had won the first leg 2-0.

Bidco’s win – that took them to the 42-point mark – saw them open a six point gap over third placed Vihiga United who fell 2-1 to FC Talanta on Sunday at Camp Toyoyo.

Vihiga United is on 36 points and tied with Nairobi Stima who blew away a 2-0 half time lead on Saturday to draw Kenya Police 2-2 at Camp Toyoyo.

Ushuru shot to fifth with a 3-2 win over AP Bomet at Toyoyo taking advantage of the falling Migori who are now down to sixth.

Games continue next weekend with a set of round 22 games across various venues.
