Barrolle Suffers another Defeat

The Kanyan Pepper boys of Mighty Barrolle on Saturday suffered another defeat in the Cellcom National League when they fell to LPRC Oilers 1-0 at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium.

Barrolle started the match on slow motion by making less attempts on goal with just a shot on target.

Frustration was seen on the faces of Barrolle fans, including national team head coach James Debbah.

LPRC dominated the first half, getting close to the goal with several attempts but could not find the back of the net.

Nimba Defeats Lions FC in Friendly

In preparation for the forthcoming County Meet, the Nimba County squad on Sunday, November 20, defeated 3rd division side Lions FC 2 – 0 in a friendly soccer match at the Ganta Sport Stadium in Ganta City.

Nimba dominated the game from start to the finish, scoring their first goal in the 4th minute.

Although the goal enlivened the spirit of the spectators, they were, however, skeptical about the Mountainous boys winning the game.

The Lions doubled their attacks but they could not get the equalizer.

Paul Were Goal Gives Harambee Stars Victory over Lone Star

Harambee Stars coach Stanley Okumbi picked his third win in a row after the team beat Liberia 1-0 in an international build up match at Kasarani on Tuesday.

Paul Were's 48th minute goal separated the two sides. The win came just three days after Harambee Stars edged out Mozambique 1-0 at the same venue.

Stars had also beaten Democratic Republic of Congo 1-0 in Kinshasha last month.

Stars showed some lethargy in the first half of Tuesday's match creating just a few chances as Okumbi made four changes to the team that played against Mozambique last Saturday.

Timbe Back to Stars Squad against Liberia

Harambee Stars attacking midfielder Ayub Timbe is fit to start against Liberia at Safaricom Kasarani Stadium on Tuesday.

Timbe, who plays for the Belgian second-tier league side Lierse FC, has been sidelined with a hamstring injury for four weeks. Timbe scored in Lierse’s 2-1 victory over Union Saint-Gilloisa in the Belgian second-tier league on October 15.

According to Harambee Stars head coach Stanley Okumbi, Timbe, who was Kenya’s highest scorer during the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualification, is fit to play.
