Kenya Premier League (KPL) leaders earned their fourteenth victory of the season following a hard-fought 1-0 advantage over coastal based side Bandari FC on Saturday.
Ghanaian national Stephen Owusu came from the bench to nod in the lone winner with his maiden touch on the ball after substituting former SC Villa captain Anthony Ndolo in the 83rd minute.
The brewers remain with only four league games to sum up their hectic season and could be crowned champions in case they win three of their four remaining games.
Former MVP and topscorer Dan Sserunkuma also made a 41st minute appearance for Bandari while Shafiq Batambuze and Hashim Sempala featured 90 minutes for the visitors. Robert Omunuk returned to the team and played the last ten minutes.
