Kenga earns Bandari point against Posta

NAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 3 – Shabaan Kenga struck at the stroke of half time as Bandari came from a goal down to draw 1-1 with Posta Rangers in a rescheduled Kenyan Premier League tie at the Mbaraki Sports Complex on Thursday evening.

The mailmen had gone ahead through Francis Nambute, but Bandari, who just returned to the country two days ago from their CAF Confederation Cup heroics in Tunisia, fought to get a point at least in a rain-drenched pitch.

Posta got into the lead in the 21st minute when Nambute reacted quickest after keeper Mike Wanyika had spilled a shot, handing Sammy Omollo’s charges a good cushion away from home.

The Dockers had started well and even after conceding kept the surge and attacking play. In the 28th minute they came close when Darius Msagha’s freekick from the edge of the area was deflected and went inches wide with the keeper thrown the other way.

Four minutes later, it was Ugandan William Wadri’s chance to test the keeper off another set piece, but this time he had it well gathered in his arms.

They were rewarded a minute into added time when Kenga nodded home unmarked inside the area after rising to meet a Abdallah Hassan cross.

None of the two sides could get a winner in the second half, the slippery condition of the pitch making it difficult for anyone to have a real go at goal.
