Vihiga United will host Nairobi City Stars in a matchday 27 clash at the ASK Nakuru grounds on Wednesday 21 July 2021 starting 1 pm.

The game should have, traditionally, been played at the Mumias Complex but due to a lockdown of the county within which the venue resides, due to the rise in coronavirus numbers, the match had to shift to Nakuru.

It will be the first time ever that Vihiga United will be hosting City Stars in a Premiership tie.

Vihiga United has hosted City Stars only twice before – but in the second-tier National Super League (NSL) where they have a win and loss to show.

Into the game, the key changes on either side are on the coaching department.

During the first leg tie played at Utalii grounds on 23rd December 2020, which ended 1-1, Sammy Okoth was on the Vihiga side and Sanjin Alagic on the opposite side.

Nairobi City Stars vs Vihiga United: It’s a draw

Mike Mururi has since stepped in to replace Okoth while John Amboko has been elevated to Sanjin’s role.

Form-wise, Vihiga United comes to the game with a three-game winless streak as City Stars carries two draws in between a win.

Simba wa Nairobi currently sits seventh on the 17-team log with 37 points, 19 clear of 16th placed Vihiga United.

It will be an epic duel in Nakuru as Vihiga hopes to end a collective six games with no win, as City Stars wish to romp to the top five of the league with all spoils.
