MD14: Nairobi City Stars 1 Bandari 0

Robinson Asenwa celebrates his goal against Bandari during a match day 14  tie in Ruaraka on Sat 9 Dec 2023. City Stars won it 1-0

Robinson Asenwa’s lone goal within the first three minutes is all Nairobi City Stars needed to see off visiting Bandari 1-0 during an FKF Premier League matchday 14 clash in Ruaraka, Nairobi, on Saturday 9 December 2023.

Asenwa got to the end of a perfect Mohammed Bajaber layup before a quick control and shot on the turn that went in at the near post to the surprise of Bandari keeper Joseph Ochuka.

The win sent Simba wa Nairobi up to the 21-point mark, and up two places to seventh place in the 18-team log.

Keeper Mukolwe was later named the match MVP, and later earned a place in the team of the week alongside stopper Wycliffe Awiko Omondi, and flyer Bajaber who, separately, was nominated for Player of the Week.

Next up for City Stars is an away game to Ulinzi Stars at the Ulinzi Complex on Sunday 17 December 2023, starting at 3 p.m.
