Mombasa, KENYA: Voroni Strikers FC missed the chance to clinch the inaugural Mombasa Maisha County League after they went down 1-0 away to Shanzu United at Shanzu Harare ground over the weekend.

Hassan Zubra’s 75th minute goal proved crucial as United not only breached Voroni’s 12-match unbeaten streak but also reduced two points its five point advantage at the summit.

With second placed Shanzu Swansea beating Wembe Stars 2-0 in other day’s clash, the league winner will now be decided on the final day where the two clubs will go head on.

Voroni however has an upper hand in the tie since they only need to avoid defeat to claim the championship unlike Swansea who must win in order to be crowned champions.

After 15 rounds Voroni Strikers remain at the apex of the 17-team log with 38 points, two points behind Shanzu Swansea.
