Sharks succumbed to a 0-1 result to mark their fifth loss of the season courtesy of Nairobi city Stars on matchday 17.


Sharks were quick to show flashes of brilliance as they settled early into the encounter.

Julius Masaba’s burst from his own 18 yard area all the way to the City Stars goal proved unsuccessful after He fired just inches wide with only Osano to beat.

Henry Juma who was marking his fourth start of the season quickly noticed an uncomfortable Osano on the ball whom He outmuscled and won the ball only to fire at the latter who had thrown his body on the line to make up for his mistake.

A couple of other chances went begging before the first half came to a close as Mokaya saw his shot trickle past the goal line and Fortune Omoto’s trickery couldn’t break the City Stars defense.
