MD5: Nzoia Sugar 1 Nairobi City Stars 0

Nairobi City Stars winger Vincent 'Jamaica' Otieno in a game vs Nzoia United on Sun 29 Nov 2020 at Narok Stadium in the 2020/21 FKF Premier League season opener. City Stars won 2-0 with goals from Anthony Kimani and Oliver Maloba

A Bonface Kweyu penalty in the tail end of the first half is all that home team Nzoia Sugar needed to see off Nairobi City Stars in Sudi Stadium on Saturday 17 December 2022 during a match day five FKF Premier League tie.

The penalty was awarded after Simba wa Nairobi stopper Kenedy Vidic Onyango was adjudged to have tagged Joseph Mwangi in the box. Amid wild protestations from the visitors, Kweyu eventually stepped up to settle the game as Nzoia posted their first-ever home win over City Stars.

From the results, City Stars remains 15th with a single point as Nzoia moved to the ten points after five rounds of play.

Next up for City Stars is a home game against Kariobangi Sharks in Ruaraka on Wednesday 21 December 2022 starting 3 pm.
