Timothy Muganda up against Benson Omala of Gor during a matchday 22 tie. Gor won it 1-0

A fourth minute goal by Benson Omala is all Gor Mahia needed to stop Nairobi City Stars 1-0 in Machakos during a matchday 22, 2023-24 FKF Premier League tie played on Saturday 17 Feb 2024.

Omala got to the end of a Shariff Musa assist sending the ball past Elvis Ochoro in goal for the winner.

From the result, and coupled with others, City Stars drops from second to fifth due to goal difference while still on 37 points as Gor consolidated their place at the helm of the 18-team standings with 48 points.

Next up for Simba wa Nairobi is an away trip to Kariobangi Sharks on Sat 2 March 2024.
