MD21: Bandari 0 Nairobi City Stars 1

Vincent Owino celebrates his winning goal against Bandri on Sat 10 Feb 2024 in Mbaraki

Vincent Owino’s pile-driver from the edge of the box in the 34th minute handed visiting Nairobi City Stars a 1-0 win over hosts Bandari during a matchday 21 topflight league game in Mbaraki on Saturday 10 February 2024.

Owino got to the end of a perfect layup from Robinson Asenwa on the left to slam home his seventh goal of the season for City Stars to complete a season double, having won the first leg tie 1-0 in Ruaraka in December 2023 during matchday 14.

Asenwa received a flicked header from Japanese forward Yuto Kusaba who earned his first start of the season in the game, then got the ball to Owino.

For his heroics, Owino was named the man of the match for the second time this season after his first against Kariobangi Sharks on matchday 12 in November 2023.

The win saw City Stars snap a two-game winless streak to return to winning ways that sent them up from fourth place back to second spot with 37 points.

Next up for Simba wa Nairobi is a clash with log leaders Gor Mahia in Machakos on Sunday 18 February 2024 starting at 3 p.m.
