Seven matches are expected to be held at the weekend across various grounds in Nairobi as the Super 8 Premier League gains momentum.
The duel pitching title chasers Kawangware United and Technical University of Kenya (TUK) at Kawangware BP ground will, however, be the highlight of the weekend as it has the ingredients of a thriller.
Kawangware sit five points clear at the top of the 16 team-chart with 39 points collected from 12 wins and three draws and they will be aiming to extend their stay at the helm for them to maintain their seven-match unbeaten streak.
The Kawangware-based side began their second leg on high note after dismissing Macmillan 2-1 during their outing last week and hope to be on their best form when they take on the 2016 league winners.
Ahead of the must watch battle, Kawangware’s assistant coach Laban Mwangi said: “I have no concerns so far in my team since the second leg began, we won the opener last weekend which was a sign of more good things to come. Right now I know dreams of beating us but we are prepared for the challenge.
Our priority is to keep going by picking as many points as possible.” A win today for the table toppers will, however, not come easy as their opponents TUK registered the highest number of goals in last week’s matches after they pipped Ajax Youth 4-0 in a one-sided match.
“In this penultimate stage, we will be taking a match at a time as we fix our focus on climbing up the log by keeping pace with the top teams.
We are taking our fixture against Kawangware just like any other, as we try to work on our consistency which I believe will be key to keep up with the top teams,” said TUK’s coach Alouch.
In other matches, Kiambu Youth will take on Nysa, while Melta face off with Metro Sports as MASA and Macmillan play against Kabete and Ajax respectively.
