The National Super League (NSL) will enter match day 14 on Wednesday with a total of nine games across various venues.

In one of the fixtures league leaders Nairobi City Stars will host sixth placed Ushuru at the Hope Centre starting 3pm EAT.

Heading to that game, City Stars aka Simba Wa Nairobi, with 35 points from 13 games, carries a six-point gap over the chasing pack, and massive 15 points over the visiting Ushuru FC.

From the last round of games, City Stars stretched their stay atop the league after a lone Ebrima Sanneh penalty in the 74th minute ensured all spoils against FC Talanta at Camp Toyoyo.

Second placed Nairobi Stima will be at home to Kibera Black Stars at Karuturi grounds on Wednesday. The team consolidated second spot during the last round of games on Friday after seeing off Administration Police (AP) 2-1 at the same venue to hit the 29-point mark.

Third placed Bidco United will be away to Coast Stima at Mbaraki grounds in Mombasa as fourth placed Vihiga United will sit out the upcoming round following the suspension of games for troubled Northern Wanderers.

On Friday, Bidco hit Ushuru 2-0 at Camp Toyoyo as Vihiga United managed the same score line over Coast Stima in Mumias with goals from Alex Imbusia and Dennis Wafula in the sixth and 61st minutes, respectively. The results kept Bidco at third with 28 points and just ahead of Vihiga United on goal difference.

Fifth placed Migori Youth lost a bit of ground in their last fixtures after being held to a 2-2 draw at home by tenth placed Muranga SEAL. They are four points off the chasing pack with 24 points. They will be away to 17th placed Modern Coast Rangers on Wednesday.
