City Stars stun Thika United



In-form Nairobi City Stars handed Thika United their first away loss of the season with a 3-2 win at Hope Centre on Sunday.

It was the home side’s third win straight win propelling them to 11th place on the log with 17 points. For the visitors, it was their first loss since the 2-1 reverse against AFC leopards on April 14 ending a four match unbeaten streak.

The Kawangware based side drew first blood when George Odary produced a fantastic finish on ten minutes after he was set up by Justus Basweti on the left wing.

City Stars who appeared to have mastered the slippery pitch extended their lead through Basweti on 44th minute after combining well with Uganda import Dan Sserunkuma and Odari.

Thika who have been in great form recently pulled one back through Liberian Freeman Mulbah just before the break.

The visitors came in the second half with their guns blazing forcing numerous fruitless corners. City Stars put the issue beyond doubt ten minutes from time through veteran Francis Thairu.

Harambee Stars trialist Moses Arita made the scoreline respectable in added time curling in a sumptuous free kick that beat City Stars keeper Ronnie Kagunzi.

City Stars team manager Lawrence Njenga lauded his players for securing their third consecutive victory adding that he was optimistic they would maintain their winning momentum.

Thika Chief Executive officer Mike Muriuki complained of the poor ground that was muddy and slippery and pleaded with KPL to look for another alternative ground especially when its rainy.
