For only the second time in the Kenyan topflight, Kenya Police will host Nairobi City Stars during a 24th round FKF Premier League at the Police Sacco Stadium, South C, starting 3.15 p.m.
Police first hosted Simba wa Nairobi in Kasarani Annex back on 16 October 2023 during the second game of last season. They went on to lose the duel 2-0. Timothy Ouma and Ezekiel Odera scored the goals.
During that game, legendary John Bobby Ogola was the Police head coach, and he came up against Nicholas Muyoti who went on to post his first win as a City Stars coach.
It’s now a year and a half later after that game that Police are hosting City Stars once again, and Muyoti will be up against another legend of the game; coach Francis Baraza.
Barry, as Baraza is fondly known, was in charge when the two sides last met in the league on 7 February 2023 in Kasarani Annex during the first leg of the current season.
Police canceled out a 1-0 first-half deficit from Odera’s goal with a quickfire response within a minute by Alvin Mang’eni for Police to come from behind and win it 2-1.
Heading to the mid-week game, City Stars tags along with a 3-2 loss to Posta Rangers suffered at the same venue on Easter Sunday, as Police parade a 0-0 draw against AFC Leopards registered on the same day in Nyayo Stadium.
On the log, Police sit sixth in the 18-team standings with 37 points, 17 clear of 16th-placed City Stars
