A win against their ‘big brothers’ Western Stima on Wednesday will make for a mouth-watering tie against second placed KCB on Sunday with three points separating the two sides in the standings, if the bankers beat Coast Stima on Wednesday.Assistant coach Fred Ambani, a former Kenyan international admits they have their work cut out but says they are under no pressure only noting they will give their best on the pitch.“It is a very tough path for us because both teams we are facing are very tough. But we are ready for it. For us, we just need to put our effort on the pitch and hope results favor us,” Ambani who assists another former Kenyan international Ibrahim Shikanda at the team said.Nairobi Stima in action during their National Super League match against Administration Police at the Camp Toyoyo Ground.Nairobi Stima are four points ahead of Ushuru and if the taxmen drop points when they face GFE 105 in midweek, then the Nairobi based power-men will be assured of a chance at qualification with the play-off against the 16th placed team from the KPL.“We are ready for anything, but it is our wish that we get the automatic slot. Western Stima will be a very tough game because despite the fact that they have already qualified for the Premier League, they want to finish number one,”“We beat them in the first leg and they will come in for revenge. For us, we are prepared for that game and the players are hungry to get results, from the way they have been playing,” Ambani further noted.Ambani’s charges warmed up for the Stima Derby with a 2-0 victory over Administration Police while the visitors were 1-0 winners over Coast Stima on Friday, a victory that earned them a confirmed slot in next season’s KPL.KCB players line up before their National Super League match against Green Commandos at the Camp Toyoyo Ground on September 28, 2018.

Yes, we see the finish line in sight but nothing is done yet until we confirm that we have the automatic qualification ticket. The last two seasons, we have suffered because we won games even before playing them but now, we can’t underrate anyone. We will fight till the end,” Ayany told Capital Sport.Ushuru FC players hurdle together before their National Super League match against St. Joseph Youth at the Camp Toyoyo Ground on September 28, 2018. PHOTO/Timothy Olobulu.Though not admitting it, Ushuru seemed to have already resigned to the fact that promotion might be a foregone venture for them this season. Four points away from third place and motivation nowhere near close to fight, the taxmen might do with another season in the second tier.Ushuru wasted chances on Friday before being held to a 1-1 draw by St. Joseph Youth, a result that with Nairobi Stima winning the next day meant their ambition was all going up in smoke.“This was the match that I was really relying on to get three points and push, but it did not happen. That’s how football is. We must accept the results; win, draw or loss. The hopes are now minimal but we will see how things go before the season ends,” the experienced and long serving Kenyatta said.0Shares0000(Visited 3 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Nairobi Stima players line up before a past National Super League match at the Karuturi Complex in Naivasha.NAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 1 – Promotion-chasing Nairobi Stima find themselves engulfed in a huge battle in their journey to next year’s Kenyan Premier League (KPL) as they face the division’s top two sides in their final two games of the National Super League (NSL) season.Nairobi face leaders and already promoted Western Stima on Wednesday at the Karuturi Grounds in Naivasha before concluding the season against second placed KCB in Nairobi on Sunday.

County employee and 20 years ago when the Whittier Earthquake hit, I had just started a new county assignment on the fourth floor and I didn’t know any of my new assignment staff. A person had just walked by with two containers of water for morning coffee and then the earthquake hit. I stood under the doorway, and an overhead clock fell on my head. At the time it didn’t hurt. When I looked at the building walls they were moving back and forth. I walked the walk floor to see if there was anyone else on the floor, there were three others. I got ahold of someone who would become one of my best friends and walked down four flights of stairs in the dark; no emergency lights went on. Once we got to the ground floor we didn’t even know what to do if the stairs weren’t there. We just held hands and made our way down.
