Newly-promoted Leads United will be hoping to bounce back to winning ways when they welcome struggling Technical University of Kenya (TUK) to Ngong Posta grounds in one of the eight Super 8 Premier League matches slated for this weekend.
Leads, under the tutelage of Moses Wekesa, suffered a humiliating 5-0 defeat to leaders Makadara Junior League SA last weekend and will be eying victory which will lift them from their current 11th position on the table.
The hosts have played seven, won two and lost five of their matches and take on a TUK side that is bottom of the 16-team league, having only won one match this season.
The university students went down 4-2 to RYSA last weekend, their second defeat in a row following a 2-0 reverse to Meltah Kabiria. They are, however, not giving up.
“I cannot give excuses because the truth is that we are not at our best. The lecturers’ strike had affected us because some of us come from very far so training was a challenge but we will pick up soon.
We want to win matches and return to the top and therefore we are taking this game against Leads very seriously,” said TUK defender Phillip Mwathathe, who led the squad to the 2015 Super 8 tournament title as well as the 2016 Super 8 Champions League crown.
Meanwhile, champions Kawangware United will host second from bottom Zamalek FC hoping to climb to fifth on the log while third-placed Jericho All-Stars travel to Drive Inn grounds to take on 12th-placed Metro Sports.
Metro are winless in their last four games and have not scored a goal in that same period making their clash against Jericho a must win.
