MD9: Muranga SEAL 2 Nairobi City Stars 1

Muranga SEAL vs Nairobi City Stars at St. Sebastian's Park, Muranga on Wed 1 Nov 2023. The hosts won it 2-1

Substitute Robinson Asenwa’s maiden Premier League goal late in the second half was not enough as Nairobi City Stars went down 2-1 to Muranga SEAL during a ninth-round 2023-24 FKF Premier League match.

Asenwa, on for Mohammed Bajaber at halftime, was teed up by another substitute Andrew Kisilu for what turned out to be a consolation in the 80th minute.

Muranga SEAL scored within the first ten minutes off a rebound through Titus Kapchanga, and doubled matters three minutes after the hour mark. Both goals came off blunders at the back.

City Stars ended up a man short after lead striker Kelvin Etemesi saw a straight red in the 5th minute for a stretched elbow. He had been yellow-carded earlier in the first half.

While Muranga SEAL moved to the 17-point mark to solidify a top-three placing, Simba wa Nairobi dropped to 13th still holding on to nine points.

Next up for Simba wa Nairobi is a home game against AFC Leopards in Kasarani on Saturday 4 November 2023 starting at 3 p.m
