MD23: Kariobangi Sharks 0 Nairobi City Stars 0

It ended 0-0 on Saturday 2 March 2024 when Kariobangi Sharks hosted Nairobi City Stars in a matchday 23, 2023-24 FKF Premier League tie at the Police Sacco Stadium.

The tie could have taken a twist in favor of Sharks in the 79th minute but it was not to be after Simba wa Nairobi keeper Edwin Mukolwe saved a point blank penalty by John Mark Makwata.

The spot kick was awarded after right back Rowland Makati was adjudged to have handled a swerving ball that headed wide at the far post.

Mukolwe, who had some massive saves in the first half, was later named the most valuable player after the match.

With a point earned, City Stars moved two places up from sixth to fourth on the 18-team log with a new tally of 38 points.

Sharks on their part maintained 15th spot with a new collection of 24 points.

Next up for Simba wa Nairobi is a home game against Bidco United on Saturday 9 March 2023 in Machakos starting at 1 pm.
