Kariobangi Sharks will host Nairobi City Stars on Saturday 6 February 2022 in Kasarani Annex in what will be the fourth Premier League game between the two.
Though it will be the fourth tie in the top flight, it will only be City Stars’ second visit to Sharks.
In the first-ever visit last year, City Stars shocked host Sharks with a 2-1 win at Utalii.
Second-half goals by Peter Opiyo, a penalty, and a blast from Oliver Maloba did the damage leaving Sharks to pick a late consolation by Daniel Sakari who followed up on a saved penalty right at the death.
Interestingly, and was the case last season, City Stars head to the upcoming away tie having lost the first leg game 2-1.
The Sharks are third on the log and just ahead of fourth-placed City Stars on goal difference. After 16 rounds of play, both teams are on 28 points.
Sharks heads to the game on the back of a 3-0 win over Sofapaka while City Stars’ most immediate result was a 1-1 draw with log leaders Kakamega Homeboyz.
Coach Nicholas Muyoti, hired at the onset of the season, will lead Simba wa Nairobi in his first away game against Sharks who will once again be led by coach William Kanu Muluhya.
