MD12: Nairobi City Stars 3 Kariobangi Sharks 1

Finally, in attempt four across as many seasons, Nairobi City Stars saw off Kariobangi Sharks, 3-1, during a matchday 12 game in the 2023/24 FKF Premier League season in Kasarani Annex on Saturday 25 November 2023.

Vincent Owino – later named the MVP – was the toast for Simba wa Nairobi as his brace of penalties in either half, in added time of the first half and 48th minute, topped up on Mohammed Bajaber’s early opening goal in the third minute. Robinson Asenwa assisted all three goals.

Visiting Sharks, with two wins and a draw from the previous three games on the road against City Stars, got a consolation via a Geoffrey Onyango penalty in the 58th minute.

From the win, City Stars temporarily – pending Sunday games – moved up four places from 13th to ninth with 15 points as Sharks dropped a place to 13th spot.

Next up for City Stars is an away game against table leaders Posta Rangers in Kasarani Annex on Saturday 2 December, 2023 starting at 3 p.m.
