Migori Youth captain Clifford Otieno is upbeat the club can finish among the top four clubs in the National Super League after resuming the second-tier league with a victory in one of the three rescheduled matches played on Wednesday.

The South Nyanza based club defeated Mwatate United 2-0 to move out of the relegation zone up to 12th in the standings with 21 points from 17 matches played.

Former Gor Mahia striker Dickson “Agwambo” Raila debuted with a goal in addition to Michael Bosco strike that sealed all three points for Migori.

“We are very happy to come back home with all maximum points especially after another stressful two months out without football,” said Otieno during an interview with The Standard Sports.

“This win will come in handy ahead of our next matches which we have to win in order to be able to achieve our goal of finishing in the top four,” Otieno added.

Meanwhile, Vihiga Bullets closed the gap on joint leaders Kenya Police and FC Talanta to two points after narrowly edging out Fortune Sacco 1-0 in Kianyaga Stadium.

The victory saw Vihiga move to third in the standings with 30 points, two behind Kenya Police and FC Talanta who are tied on 32 points.
