It has been a perfect Saturday for Kenyan players abroad with striker Jonah Ayunga and midfielder Eric Johanna both scoring for their respective teams.
Ayunga who managed 79 minutes for St Mirren in the Scottish Championship was to open the goalscoring proceedings two minutes after half time but his side was to share a point with giants Rangers with the visitors scoring from the penalty spot six minutes from time through Tavernier. The draw leaves them in seventh place with 21 points after 15 games.
In Thailand, Johanna was on the scoresheet in Muang Thong United’s 2-2 draw against Nongbua Pitchaya. Hosts Pitchaya had taken a half-time lead thanks to Phanitchakun 33 minute strike but Johanna restored parity on the hour mark. Tardeli was to restore the hosts’ lead 16 minutes later but Muang Thong ensured they walked home with a point thanks to an extra-time goal from Kanyarot.
