Report from the Nation

Tusker dictated proceedings, but missed a couple of chances.

Midfielder Apollo Otieno came closest, his shot hitting the woodwork in the 58th minute with Gor Mahia custodian Gad Mathews well beaten.

However, the game had a nasty ending as K'Ogalo fans caused chaos after Benson Omalla’s goal was ruled offside after he found the back of the net from a rebound in the 88th minute.

The rowdy fans threw missiles on to the pitch and threatened to storm the field. The fracas lasted for about 10 minutes before the game resumed.

Jackson Macharia’s goal in time added time (93rd minute) for Tusker was also ruled out for offside.

Tusker players protested the decision as chaos reigned on the stands forcing the referee to end the match.

“Our goal was legitimate and this raises a lot of questions on the level of officiating. This is a game we should have won if our goal was not disallowed," Gor Mahia coach Andrea Spier told Nation Sport.

The brewers are second on the league table with 43 points, nine points behind Homeboyz while Gor are third on 42 points.
