Nairobi City Stars held Kenyan Premier League (KPL) top dogs Gor Mahia to a barren draw in friendly played at Camp Toyoyo, Jericho on Tuesday 4 February 2020.
The game was geared at giving a runout to players that did not make the squad against Bidco United on Sunday at the same venue as well as those that came on as substitutes.
“We organized a friendly match for the players who did not play the last league games. I agreed with the Gor Mahia coach (Steve Pollack) that we give the players the chance to play,” said City Stars head coach Sanjin Alagic
“It was one good test for both coaches to see the level of the players who did not have enough minutes in the last league games,”
“It was a good test for the players from both teams and hopefully in the future we will try to organise such strong games.”
Both Gor Mahia and Nairobi City Stars top their respective Kenyan Premier and National Super Leagues.
Keeper Jacob Osano, Kevin Okumu, Jacob Osano, Azizi Okaka and striker Vincent Otieno who were unused subs against Bidco United featured in the game as well as those who were not factored in; Ebrimma Sanneh, Wesley Onguso, Noah Abich, Eric Ochieng as well as re-signed John Kamau and Tedian Atuto all featured in the game.
