The Ligi Ndogo Planets wrapped another win in a virtuoso performace,fending off a a feisty Congo United 2-0 to jump to the top of the FKF standings.This was the second league match played at the Hope centre.
The Planets had four midfielders and twin strikers against a Congo side that employed three centre backs in a 3-5-2 formation.Central defender Alex Karmo once again stood tall in the middle.His superb play was complemented by right back Bobby Ogolla and captain Sammy Machio who fell back to help.
The Planets started patiently,pressing in the middle before upping the tempo,half an hour into the first half.Intially they were able to find aerial space,going high long balls against their physically smaller opponents.
In the 56th minute,captain Sammy Machio broke the deadlock,pouncing on a defensive lapse.Abbas Akinyemi made it 2-0 with nine minutes to go after connecting on a Charmant Chihuguyu cross.
