The visitors then doubled their advantage 10 minutes later through Collins Neto before Paul Acqua extended the lead 3-0 at the stroke of half-time, heading in Musa Masika’s cross.

The second half started with intensity as Talanta strikers tested Wazito goalkeeper. Wazito added the fourth one from the spot through Wilson Anekeya to seal the win.

Talanta FC grabbed their consolation in the last minutes through Job Tinyu.

Speaking after the match, Wazito FC head coach Fred Ambani acknowledged the intensity of the game and was happy to have gotten the three points
