Makati scores winner

Makati, Nairobi City Stars

Makati, 20, scored the winning goal a minute to halftime as Nairobi Stima pipped MCF 2-1 in a round 21 National Super League (NSL) clash played at Camp Toyoyo on Monday 7 June 2021.

Makati’s goal, a second straight for resurgent Stima coming right after one last week in a 3-1 rout of Gusii United, turned out to be the decider as MCF’s 7scored a 73rd-minute consolation through Bradley Omondi.

Makati’s goal, his fourth of the season, came just three minutes after his teammate Hillary Otieno got to the end of a Benjamin Chaka goal for the opener.

Makati, a natural attacking midfielder, is on a season-long loan at Nairobi Stima alongside defensive midfielder Ronney Kola.

He initiated a flowing move to Fortune Omoto who returned the favor and he fired home a low shot at the near post to double the scores.

“We monitor the two youngsters very closely and we are happy when they put in a good shift to hand Nairobi Stima full points,” said team coordinator Samson Otieno

“They went on a mutually beneficial loan to gain much-needed exposure this season before they can return to contest for positions at City next term,”

“We are impressed by Makati’s current form as well as Kola’s progress and we have to thank his coaches Barrack and Macharia for putting trust in them.” added Samson

From the Monday win, Nairobi Stima has now eased their relegation worries by moving up two places to the 15th spot with 25 points and within seven points of fourth-placed MCF.
