• NSL top scorer this season, Vincent Nyabuto gave the Glamour Boys the lead after a howler by Kajiado goalkeeper Idd Marion allowed him to slot into an empty net in the 27th minute.
• Kajiado head coach Martin Mutembei attributed inexperience to their third loss in five league encounters.
Shabana extended their lead at the top of the Football Kenya Federation National Super League to five points after a 3-1 triumph over Kajiado FC in a midweek match played at Gusii Stadium.
The former Kenyan Premier League side now lead the log with 22 points from eight matches followed by Kibera Black Stars with 17 points while Coastal Heroes are third with 13 points from eight games.
NSL top scorer this season, Vincent Nyabuto gave the Glamour Boys the lead after a howler by Kajiado goalkeeper Idd Marion allowed him to slot into an empty net in the 27th minute. Isaac Otieno added Shabana’s tally in the 42nd minute.
In the second half, Kajiado appeared rejuvenated and pulled one back through James Mutuku in the 52nd minute when his volley from outside the area beat Michael Matasio in the Shabana goal.
It was the second goal that Shabana has conceded in eight games.
Kajiado's hopes of salvaging a point at Gusii Stadium were dashed when Nyabuto notched his second goal of the game and sixth for the season.
Kajiado head coach Martin Mutembei attributed inexperience to their third loss in five league encounters.
“I have a very young squad comprising mostly of armateurs. These are boys who have never played in any league. In the mid-season, I intend to sign experienced players. I have already identified four because for a team to compete in this league, you need experience,” added Mutembei.
He said his boys would seek to bounce back when they play their next game against SS Assad at Shamu grounds in Kwale County on Monday.
Shabana assistant coach Kevin Momanyi, standing in for the suspended Sammy Okoth, said: “We want to make Gusii Stadium our fortress by winning all our home games. That is our target this season.”
He added: “The match against Kajiado was very technical. We want to continue with this momentum to help us return to the Kenyan Premier League. I want to promise the fans that this is our year.”
Momanyi hailed the fans who turned up in large numbers despite being a weekday.
