Modern Coast Rangers Friday handed visiting Nairobi City Stars a 3-1 hiding at Serani Sports grounds, Mombasa to register their first win of the 2018/19 National Super League (NSL) season.

Alpha Ouma gave the home team the lead in the first half with Francis Ochola netting a brace in the second half as Alex Yeroga scored City Stars' consolation through a penalty.

Modern Coast interim coach Joseph Shihuli termed the win a big reprieve after a poor start to the season that saw them pick only one point from five matches.

“We started the season with some problems having only 12 players where we failed to honour two matches, lost two and drew one. I’m happy we now have a complete squad and we hope to continue winning,” said Shihuli.

City Stars coach John Amboko blamed the loss on his defenders for leaving his goalkeeper Evans Lisenge exposed.
