Simba wa Nairobi once again overcame a tough K-Sports team, this time 2-1, in a friendly game played at Ligi Ndogo grounds on Thursday 17 February 2022.
New recruit Augustine Kuta opened the scoring in the 5th minute before Michael Madoya doubled matters seven minutes after the restart.
K-Sports, fielding a strong squad full of Premier League experience, halved the deficit 12 minutes to time through Robert Mutua.
During the pre-season in mid-September 2021, Simba wa Nairobi managed a 2-0 win over over the same K-Sports FC in one of two friendly games played at the St. Mary’s school.
A flicked header at the near post by Sven Yidah and a low shot at the far post in the second half by Vincent Jamaica Otieno delivered the win then.
The latest friendly was lined up to prepare City Stars for its next league assignment against Mathare United on Saturday 26 February 2022.
