Comoros claimed a precious 2-1 win at home over Kenya to move three points clear of Egypt on top of Group G of the African Cup of Nations qualifiers.

Ben Nabouhane put the hosts ahead in the 21st minute but Cliff Nyakeya drew Kenya level 15 minutes later.

Faiz Mattoir scored the winner for Comoros four minutes after the break to help the group outsiders continue their impressive run as they seek to reach the Nations Cup for the first time in their history.

Kenya, who were held to a 1-1 draw at home by Comoros on Wednesday, will be desperate to win their remaining two games to keep alive their hopes of reaching the Cameroon finals.

They lie third in the group with three points and will host Egypt on 22 March before meeting Togo away one week later.

Egypt ended their winless start to the group by beating Togo 1-0 at Cairo Stadium on Saturday. They are second with five points and will go level on top with Comoros if they beat Togo on Tuesday.
