For a second time this year, Gor Mahia will host Nairobi City Stars in the FKF Premier League, this time at the Nyayo National Stadium on Thursday 30 December 2021 starting 3 pm.

The game was previously earmarked for Kasarani but had a late shift to Nyayo Stadium, a venue City Stars last played a premier league game back on 11 September 2016 while hosting Western Stima.

Gor Mahia last hosted City Stars at the Utalii grounds in mid-May and grabbed all points after a 1-0 win.

It will be Premier League game number 25 when the Gor – City Stars face up on Thursday.

From the previous 24 games, Gor boasts the best record having won 1 to City Stars’ four. The other eight have been drawn.

In the 24 games, Gor Mahia has outscored Simba wa Nairobi 32-16 goals.

Scaled-down to Gor’s home games, such as the upcoming one on Thursday, Gor has posted seven wins in 12 games. City Stars has won three and the other two games have ended in barren draws.

Of note is that City Stars is yet to pick a win in games hosted by Gor Mahia since April 2011, and a point since May 2013.

Last time out when Gor hosted City Stars, Portuguese coach Carlos Manuel Vaz Pinto was in charge while City Stars was under the watch of Bosnian Sanjin Alagic.

Seven months later there will be changes on either side; Mark Harrison on the Gor Mahia side will be coming up against Nicholas Muyoti, the City Stars head coach.

Form-wise, Gor, and City Stars are carrying losses to the Thursday game. While Gor went down 2-1 to Kakamega Homeboyz in their last outing, Simba wa Nairobi had a narrow 1-0 fall to KCB.

Table-wise, Gor Mahia sits fifth in the 18-team FKF Premier League log with 18 points, one ahead of seventh-placed City Stars.
