The Taxmen bagged maximum points in a five-goal thriller to sustain their promotion ambitions
Ushuru FC moved to the fifth position in the National Super League (NSL) after defeating APS Bomet 3-2 in an exciting game played at Camp Toyoyo on Sunday.
The Taxmen came into the match desperate for a win to stay in touch with leaders Nairobi City Stars and Bidco United. However, they had to give their best to get a win against the determined Rift Valley-based side.
The visitors relied on high pressing football and counter-attacks, a tactic which worked and in the sixth minute, they opened the scoring courtesy of Simon Karanja.
Ushuru responded almost instantly as Brian Yakhama levelled matters in the 10th minute with a fine finish from the penalty spot. But the administrative side went ahead again five minutes later through James Khaleha.
