Three goals in each half saw Nairobi City Stars emerged 6-0 victors over Northern Wanderers in a sixth round National Super League (NSL) clash played at Camp Toyoyo on Saturday 28 September 2019.
Goals by Ebrima Sanneh in the tenth minute, a classic one by Oliver Maloba in the 40th minute and David Gateri’s at the stroke of half time saw the hosts carry a healthy cushion into the breather.
Gateri picked it up at the start of half time to complete his brace paving way for goals by Kevin Chumsy Okumu and Jimmy Bageya to complete the blitzkrieg of the basement club.
The latest win saw City Stars rise to the acme of the table with 16 points, one ahead of Bidco United, at the close of the six games lined up in September.
