City Stars has hosted Sofapaka nine times before in the premier league and registered three wins, as many losses, and three draws.
In the last home encounter, Sofapaka received their heaviest defeat after going down 3-0 at the same venue in May 2021.
City Stars heads to the game coy of Sofapaka who handed them a 3-1 beating in Wundanyi in the 2021/22 season-opener in late September 2021.
Between then and now, Sofapaka has had a change in personnel as the mastermind of the win then, coach Ken Odhiambo, has since left the establishment and has been replaced by David Ouma.
Nicholas Muyoti, beaten in his first assignment that game as coach of Simba wa Nairobi, is still in charge.
Heading to the game, City Stars carries a draw and win over Ulinzi Stars as Sofapaka comes to the party with back-to-back 1-1 draws over log leaders Kakamega Homeboyz.
Table-wise, City Stars sits third with 45 points as Sofapaka comes in 12th with 30 points.
