AFC Leopards has gone joint-top on the FKF Premier League standings following a hard fought 1-0 win over bottom-side Mathare United at Ruaraka Grounds in Nairobi.

Former Wazito striker Elvis Rupia bagged the only goal of the game with a lovely curled effort from the edge of the box in the 8th minute.

The 11th win of the campaign takes the 13-time champions joint-top with KCB on 36 points after 17 rounds, albeit an inferior goal difference.

Both teams finished the game a man less after Collins Shichenje and David Ochieng were red cared in the final quarter of the game.

Frank Ouna is yet to register a win, three games since replacing Salim Ali at the helm of the Slum Boys.

The league leader by June 30 will represent Kenya in the CAF Champions League and Ingwe look set for the prestigious opportunity.

Meanwhile defending champions Gor Mahia has risen to fifth with a 1-0 win at Vihiga United.

Clifton Miheso scored the all-important goals in the closing stages of the first half.

K’Ogalo take their point tally 28 points, having played a game less.
