Friendly Fire: Nairobi City Stars 4 Kayole South Ward FC 0

A brace of goals from Mohammed Bajaber, and one each from Brian Mose, and Yuto Kusaba handed hosts Nairobi City Stars a 4-0 win over Kayole South Ward FC during a shape-up game at Ligi Ndogo Grounds on Wednesday 30 August 2023.

Bajaber headed home the opening goal on 13 minutes after connecting to a power throw-in from Brian Mose. He completed his brace just three minutes later off an assist from Yuto.

It was 3-0 after 32 minutes when Mose sent home a Clifford Ouma assist.

The tie ended at 4-0 on 53 minutes after Yuto fired home a cross from Bajaber.

The game handed play time to the set of players that did not feature – or grabbed a few minutes – in the opening 2023-24 FKF Premier League game against Muhooni Youth on Sunday 27 August 2023. It ended 0-0.

“The friendly game was aimed at handing all players in the squad match fitness before the next game. It playing a competitive friendly against a very good Kayole side, all the players are now at par with those that played on Sunday and can now fight for selection in the next league game against Bidco United on Sunday,” said assistant coach Peter Opiyo
