The KPL newcomers will have to wait long before picking another win even after appointing Stewart Hall as the new head coach
A brace from Shaban Kenga, one from Yema Mwana and an own goal from David Otieno were enough for the Dockers to register the vital win.
An own goal from Mohammed Siraj is all that Wazito could afford in the coastal city.
Victor Ndinya managed to successfully block Kenga just outside the box after an ambitious run from the right-wing. Ndinya’s intervention proved vital as the Bandari’s skipper shot went off-target under pressure from the Wazito’s midfielder.
Justin Ndikumana did well to deny the visitors two clear chances in the 15th and in the 23rd minutes. In the initial case, the Burundian custodian parried the ball over the bar when Ali Hassan attempted to find the top corner from outside the box.
The former Sofapaka goalkeeper then denied Wazito’s top scorer Elvis Rupia by quickly clearing the ball before the forward rose to meet a pinpoint cross from Ndinya in the box.
Bandari found their first open chance blocked by Kelvin Omondi in the 27th minute. Wilberforce Lugogo’s low drive almost found the bottom-left corner but an outstretched Omondi managed to block it before Otieno finally cleared the ball with Bandari now spending more time in their opponent’s area.
The consistent attacks from Bandari finally helped them break the deadlock in the 29th minute when Kenga headed home after meeting a cross from winger Cliff Kasuti.
It took the Dockers another four minutes from their opener to add the second goal. This time around Kasuti’s cross into the area deflected off Otieno and bounced into the net.
Just before the half-time, Wazito pulled one when Mohamed Siraj directed the ball into his own net after an attempt to clear it away.
A lively Kenga got the second one for Bandari in the 81st minute after beating a number of Wazito players before volleying the ball over Omondi.
As Wazito struggled to counter consistent attacks from Bandari they found themselves conceding the fourth one in the 83rd minute. Mwana, after picking a cross from Benjamin Mosha, slotted home to help Bandari pick their second win of the season.
