The visiting Nation Media Group FC (NMG) put up a great comeback to force Coast Media FC to a 3-3 draw in a friendly match at Uwanja wa Mbuzi ground in Mombasa on Saturday January 27, 2018.
Coast Media took the lead in the 10th minute when Eddy Oduor sent a fine pass to Rashid Mwinyi who out-run two defenders but was fouled by NMG goalkeeper Fidel Maithya inside the box. Mwinyi scored from a penalty.
The home team continued to pile up the pressure and deservedly got their second goal in the 38th minute when again Oduor was the maker of the goal, this time making a back-heel pass to Brian Otieno who overlapped and sent a cracking shot into the net.
However, NMG put up a good fight to reduce the margin in the 44th minute through Eric Musingu.
In the second half, NMG came in attacking vigorously and surprised the crowd who include the Mombasa County Assembly Speaker Harub Khatri, with their crisp short passes. They deservedly equalised in with ten minutes to go via Robert Otieno.
Coast Media got their third goal in the 87nd minute when Lukman Mahmoud in the 87th minute but with a minute to the final whistle, NMG levelled through Eric Isinta.
On Sunday January 28, 2018 the visiting NMG team clash against the Mombasa County team from 4 p.m.
Meanwhile Mombasa County assembly speaker Aharu Khatri who was present during the match promised to provide the Coast media team with new jerseys and footballs.
