Captain Kenneth Muguna and Clifton Miheso were on the mark as Gor Mahia saw off Nzoia Sugar 2-0 in a mid-week Kenyan Premier League match at the Mumias Sports Complex on Wednesday.
The win took the defending champions back to the top of the table with nine after three matches.
Nzoia on their part, drop to 13th place on the log with four points, unable to replicate their 2-0 win over Kisumu All Stars last time out.
Nzoia Coach Collins Omondi attributed the defeat to loss of concentration by his charges.
“We conceded the early goals due to lack of confidence. My boys made costly mistakes and at this level and against such kind of opposition, you will get punished,” said Omondi.
Steve Polack’s charges took an early lead in the ninth minute when captain Kenneth Muguna beat Nzoia goalkeeper Humphrey Katasi with a shot that diverted off Nzoia’s offensive midfielder Antony Njeru.
