Bandari bounced back to winning ways with a 2-0 win over relegation-threatened Kisumu All Stars in a Kenya Premier League match at Moi Stadium in Kisumu yesterday.

Yemi Mwana gave the dockers the lead in the 18th minute to take a 1-0 advantage at the break before Shaban Kenga’s 62nd minute strike sealed Bandari’s fourth win this season.

Bandari head coach Bernard Mwalala praised his charges for responding positively coming after their mid week loss to Homeboyz in Kakamega.

“We played well from the start and I think the early goal disoriented All Stars game plan. We were offensive from the start and I believe we can start rebuilding our season which has not been going well from today’s win,” he said.

All Stars coach Henry Omino said the missed chances cost them and urged the team to continue fighting.

“It is disappointing to lose again at home. The team needs to wake up and play aggressively if we are to come out of the relegation zone,” he said.
