Vihiga United hold Ulinzi Stars to barren draw as ten-man Posta Rangers share spoils with City Stars 

Nairobi City Stars were held to a 1-1 draw by Posta Rangers in an FKF Premier League match staged at Kasarani on Friday evening. 

Jackson Dwang gave Rangers the lead just before halftime but Peter Pinchez scored the leveler in the second half. In the stoppage time, Jairus Adira was shown a red card after receiving the second booking of the game for a foul on Okumu. 

Posta Rangers took the lead just before half time through Jackson Dwang. Francis Nambute had the ball on the flash before delivering a cross to Dwang who put the ball past Steven Njuge. 

In the second half, City Stars drew level through Peter Pinchez, who capitalized on Adira's mistake. A ball was delivered into the box with Ombija Erick headed towards the goal but Adira fumbled with it and it landed on Opiyo who made no mistake from the rebound. 

In the stoppage time, Rangers were reduced to ten men after goalkeeper Jairus Adira was shown the second yellow card for a foul on Okumu Rodgers. 

Stars are fifth in the league standings with nine points while Rangers are tenth on the log with five.
