Tusker FC players celebrate one of their goals.
  • Deogratious Ojok scored a hattrick in the 4-1 win
  • Tusker came from a goal down
  • The brewers have now won back to back matches

Ugandan international Degratious Ojok scored a hattrick as defending champions Tusker FC picked their second successive win in the FKF Premier League, beating Nairobi City Stars 4-1 at the Ruaraka Complex on Sunday.

The brewers had to come from behind to clinch their second successive victory of the season and move top of the table.

Head coach Robert Matano was delighted with the victory, but dejected with the performance of the referee after a disallowed goal and shouts for a penalty that were not heeded to.

“We have won and that is the most important thing. We conceded early but we came up strongly and recovered immediately. The referee frustrated us with some decisions he made but we remained calm because we were determined to win,” said the tactician.

His opposite number Nicholas Muyoti was left to rue defensive frailties that saw his side concede four, and should have been more.

“We started well but we lost the tempo midway through the first half. Tusker were the more attacking side and we collapsed and allowed them to score. We need to work hard defensively because we were poor. We also couldn’t create many chances as well and that means we have lots of work to do,” said Muyoti.

Dream start for City Stars

Action between City Stars and Tusker

City Stars had a dream start in the match when Samuel Kapen scored with a neat headed finish at the backpost from a corner.

However, Tusker responded immediately when Ojok scored the first of his three, finishing off after being sent through by Rogers Ouma. The goal gave Tusker immense confidence as they played with more authority.

Ojok should have doubled the tally in the 13th minute when a well weighted cross from Zakayo found him well placed inside the box but his header was saved.

In the 25th minute, Shaphan Oyugi scored what looked like a clean goal, but the referee whistled for offside. That didn’t stop Tusker though as they kept their composure and they doubled their tally when Ojok slid in a yard from goal to direct home a Lawrence Luvanda cross from the right.

Brewers lead 2-1 at halftime

The brewers led 2-1 at halftime after a well worked comeback.

In the second half, they continued with their strong performance and Ojok completed his hattrick on the hour mark when he lopped a header home from the backpost off an Eric Zakayo cross. Eight minutes later Tusker had another chance when Ojok was appended at the edge of the box. However, Boniface Onyango’s curling freekick went against the wall for a corner.

At the stroke of 90 minutes, the brewers completed their maul of the City Stars side when two substitutes combined. Shami Mwinyi sent Jackson Macharia through on goal, the forward moving away from his markers with a filthy turn before planting the ball into the bottom left.

It was the biggest win for Tusker this season and a statement victory in their quest to defend the title.
