Sharks managed to see off Bandari FC in a tightly contested match played today at the Mbaraki Sports Club in Mombasa.

The first half would see both sides get a host of half-chances that went begging, the match heading into the break goalless. The game however came to life in the second half, Bandari having a host of good chances to break the deadlock but couldn't make any of those count.

Midway through the half Sharks made a double substitute with the coach bringing in Masoud Juma and Ovella Ochieng, the duo would almost immediately turn the tide in Sharks' favor as they kept the Dockers' defence under pressure every time they had possession.

Masoud Juma's strike in the 79th minute proved to be the difference between the two sides at the end of the day.

Sharks move one place up to 5th in the league standings with 34 points from 22 matches. We host Mathare United in our next league match on Wednesday.

After missing our 1-1 draw against Sony Sugar on August 27, midfielder Elli Asieche returns to give the team a needed boost as we aim to get back to winning ways. We travel to Mombasa to take on Bandari on Saturday 9 with only a point separating us and our Coastal opponents.

Sharks moved up to 5th place in the standings with a hard fought win against Western Stima FC in a league match played today at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos.

Both teams started the match on a high note but it was Sharks who created most chances in the half with Paul Kamau and Mathew Odongo coming close to opening the scoring for Sharks before half time, Western Stima's defence line managing to contain the threats to ensure that the match headed into the break goalless.

Sharks would up their tempo in the match and with 20 minutes to go, the coach brought in Francis Manoa in the place of Mathew Tayo and seven minutes after coming in, Manoah gave us the lead slotting the ball home from a Duke Abuya's pass inside the box. Masoud Juma came close to extending our lead in the dying minutes of the match but he was denied by the crossbar.

The win comes as a relief and brings to an end a run of four matches without a win in the league. Sharks next assignment will be away to Sony Sugar FC in Awendo on Sunday.

Sharks cruised into the GOtv Shield semi finals with an easy 5-0 win against Eldoret Youth FC in a match played this afternoon in Nyayo Stadium.

Masoud Juma gave us the lead heading into the half and the floodgates would open in the second half with Sharks adding four more goals courtesy of Duke Abuya, Masoud Juma, Sven Yidah and Ebrima Sanneh. 

We play Sony Sugar FC in the GOtv Shield semis next month. This will be the second time in a row that Sharks will be playing in the semis and the squad would relish the chance of making it into the finals for the first time.
