Tusker FC slipped to the top of the BetKing FKF Premier League table after a 4-0 over struggling Vihiga United in Mumias.

Two goals in each half for Breweries ensured they bagged all the 3 points in the away fixture which saw them move onto the top of the table with 38 points from 18 games.

Henry Meja and Kevin Okoth netted in the 5th and 38th minutes respectively to steer their side to 2-0 lead at the break.

Five minutes after resumption from the break, Chris Ochieng found the back of the net to increase the lead to 3.

Rodgers Aloro hammered the last nail into Vihiga's coffin in the eight minute of extra time converting from the penalty spot.

In another fixture, 1998 champions AFC Leopards were handed a shocker defeat by promoted side Bidco United.

The Patrick Aussums-led camp were thrashed 3-1 at Ruaraka Grounds, a result that came as a surprise after good run of results in the recent matches.

Prior to the Sunday loss, AFC Leopards had won 5 of the last 7 games conceding only a single goal.
