Fifth placed Nairobi Stima are now training their eyes on National Super League (NSL) leaders Wazito whom they face at the Karuturi grounds on Monday 24 April in the ninth round. 

Dubbed the silent killer after a rather unnoticed rise over recent weeks, from little coverage, to perch at fifth in the standings with 15 points and within four of their next opponents Wazito, Nairobi Stima is proving to be the team to watch. 

Handle

Speaking to Soka, club chair Victor Onyango shares the clubs' little secret that has them in the top five after eight rounds of play. 

"We are performing much better than last year," he started before adding "and this is because of players who came in have gelled very well and have blended in well,"

Some of the acquisitions in the off season included former international Joseph Shikokoti as well as former Kenyan Premier League defender of the year Ivan Anguyo. 

Onyango also hinted that the changes to the technical bench last year, that saw Ibrahim Bura Shikanda move up from an assistant coaching role to head coach, and the new set of players has help spur the club the right way. 

"He (Shikanda) knows how to handle the players and that is why we are getting the right results,"

On the upcoming game against Wazito, Onyango 

"We take it a game at a time and we pray very hard. The NSL is a tough league and we are not yet at our best but we aim to be among the best. We will go into our next game looking for a win and any other result will be a surprise to us." 

Stima is unbeaten from late March and are carrying a record of two draws and three wins to their Monday game.
