We tackle City Stars as league resumes after break


Tomorrow, we resume our disrupted league fixtures with an encounter against City Stars at Ruaraka grounds as from 3pm.

It will be the first meeting between the two sides since City Stars were relegated from the top division at the end of the 2016 season.

We are currently placed seventh on the log with 22 points, two more than City Stars who sit 10th albeit having played two more games than us.

Before the Covid-19 induced break, the team had started showing some signs of form, beating Bidco FC 3-1 after having produced indifferent results including two consecutive league defeats before and as head coach Manuel Vaz Pinto says, the team will go out with a lot of commitment for victories.

“Our last game was about 55 days ago. We are happy to be back but we look at the physical integrity of the players with apprehension. We go in search of dynamics and with a lot of commitment for victories,” noted coach Pinto.

Our first league encounter against City Stars, then known as World Hope was in December in the year 2005 where we lost 0-1 in the first leg. The last meeting between the two clubs was in July 2016 when goals by current Captain Harun Shakava and Collins Okoth were enough to down them 2-1.

Nicholas Kipkirui and Peter Opiyo, if selected for City Stars will be joining other notable players such as Jimmy Bagaye, Donald Mosoti, Ken Oliech and Steve Biko as players to have featured for both sides in this fixture.
