Asubuhi in hunt for points in Super Eight league

Champions Kayole Asubuhi will be crossing swords with Ole Rongai at their Calvary grounds on Saturday from 3pm as the Super Eight Premier League continues to gain momentum.

The pulsating duel will be one of six fixtures expected to be held across various grounds in the County with the match between Zamalek FC who were elevated to the top tier after a successful campaign in the Division One league and an experienced Metro Sports being the only match scheduled for Sunday.

Kayole under the tutelage of former Gor Mahia player Isaiah Omondi will be counting on their home fans for support to collect the three points after a poor start of the second leg where the latter have not won any of their last three matches.

The Kayole-based side were left choking at fifth place on the table with 29 points after playing to a 1-1 draw with Kabete United last week and will be looking forward to beat their opponents to improve their points to successfully defend their title.

The champions come into this match as favourites after dispatching their competitors 1-0 during their heated first leg match. However, a win for the title chasers will not come easy as Rongai are on a revenge mission after a humiliating 3-1 thumping by Melta Kabiria during their last weekend outing which saw them drop two places down to settle at 14 place on the 16-team log.

At Makongeni grounds from 3pm on Saturday, home team Makongeni Sports Association (MASA) will be battling it out with arch rivals Technical University of Kenya (TUK) in a match expected to attract a huge chunk of grassroot lovers. Both sides are separated by a single point on the league table with TUK who have played a game less occupying sixth position on 28 points while their hosts are on 27 points.
