Mombasa, KENYA: Bandari FC played out to  a one all draw with visiting Thika United during the Sportpesa Premier League midweek fixture staged at KPA Mbaraki on Thursday.

Coming into the clash from the back a 4-0 drubbing of Ushuru last time out, the Dockers were all out for another triumph and indeed they looked destine when Dan Sserunkuma scored the opener two minutes after the hour mark.

However, the intention turned futile five minutes from time after Eugene Mukangula patched an equalizer with the visitors surging on to earn a point.

Bandari who were on their second match since parting ways with head coach Twahir Muhiddin now remain 10th in the standings with 18 points after 15 rounds.

In other day’s match Ushuru whacked hosts Western Stima 3-1, resurgent Sony Sugar condemned bottomed based City Stars 2-0 while Mathere United settled for a 0-0 stalemate with Posta Rangers.

Elsewhere soldiers Ulinzi Stars played out a 1-1 draw with Kakamega Homeboyz while Muhoroni Youth cruised past Chemelil Sugar 1-0.

Meanwhile defending champions Gor Mahia and rivals AFC Leopards paid the price of fans’ trouble when they were docked three points each.

The Independent Disciplinary and Complaints Committee (IDCC) on Thursday ordered that the two clubs be deducted points as punishment for crowd unrest that marred their respective matches against Tusker and Ulinzi Stars.

The decision will stand upon reinforcement by league governing body KPL.
