Head-to-head: Posta Rangers (H) vs Nairobi City Stars (A): 2021-22 FKF-PL season

Keeper Stephen Njunge initiates play against Posta Rangers during a 7th round Premier League game on Fri 8th Jan 2021 at Kasarani. The game ended 1-1

Nairobi City Stars will be guests to Posta Rangers at the Thika Stadium on Saturday 30 October 2021 during a fifth-round 2021/22 FKF Premier League match that kicks off at 1 pm. 

It will be premier league game 11 between the two since the year 2010, and the sixth that Rangers will be hosting City Stars.

In January 2021 year, in the first top-flight meeting between the two since the year 2016, Simba wa Nairobi came from behind to tie Rangers 1-1 at Kasarani Annex. They also left it late to tie the reverse tie played in August at Ruaraka 2-2.

In the five premier league games hosted by Rangers, the two sides have each picked one win apiece with the other three ending in draws.

There will be a change in personnel at the touchline in the upcoming game compared to the one Rangers hosted back in January this year.

Sammy Pamzo Omolo was in charge of Rangers then while Bosnian Sanjin Alagic was on the City Stars side. That has since changed with Stanley Okumbi taking over from Omollo as Nicholas Muyoti took the baton from Sanjin.

Of note ahead of the upcoming game is that Rangers and City Stars have never faced off in a premier league game at the Thika Stadium.

Coming to the game, City Stars carries a three-game winning streak after triumphs over Kenya Police (2-0), Wazito (3-1) and Bidco United (2-0) while Ranfers is reeling from a 2-0 defeat from Homeboyz which ended a two-game winning run over Vihiga Bullets (4-0) and Bandari (2-0).

Summary

KPL games: 10 – Posta Rangers wins (2), Nairobi City Stars wins (1), Draws (7)
