Gor Mahia FC reopened their six-point lead at the summit of the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) as the record champions floored Posta Rangers 1-0 with rain teeming down the Moi International Sports Center, Kasarani on Wednesday.

Ugandan-born Rwandese forward Meddie Kagere struck in the 22nd minute to hand Gor, who went to the clash only three points ahead of Sofapaka FC, an early advantage in the clash that saw want-away midfielder Kenneth Muguna return to Coach Dylan Kerr’s fold.

The reigning Most Valuable Player (MVP) who has reportedly handed in a transfer request as he tries to force a move to Albanian side KF Tirana showed why his employers are unwilling to let go of his services with a neat assist for Kagere who arrowed a finish beyond Rangers keeper Patrick Matasi.

In the earlier fixture at the same venue, Umar Kasumba notched a first half brace as Sofapaka tightened their grip on second spot and piled the pressure on Gor with 3-1 win over Nzoia Sugar.

The Ugandan forward gave the 2009 KPL champions a dream start when he headed them into a third minute lead before Luke Namanda cancelled out his strike in the 21st minute.

The Batoto ba Mungu restored their lead moments later before Kassumba gave them a two-goal cushion at the stroke of half time.
