Bottom-placed Rongai All Stars will seek to redeem themselves when they take on debutants RYSA at Githogoro grounds in one of the eight Super 8 Premier League matches scheduled this weekend.
Rongai, formerly known as Diguna FC, have only won one out of the nine matches this season, drawing three and losing seven, leaving them languishing at the bottom of the 16-team log with only six points.
In their last outing, Rongai suffered a 2-1 defeat in the hands of Melta Kabiria and a win against their opponents will ease their relegation worries.
However, victory will not come easily for Daniel Kayalo’s side as their challengers are equally looking for a win after suffering a 1-0 defeat against former champions Kayole Asubuhi last weekend.
RYSA are 10th on the log with nine points and victory will be crucial in retaining their status in the top half of the table. “We have been training well for this game and we cannot afford to lose at home.
Fans should come expecting total football since we will be going for an all-out attack with more strikers than midfielders unlike in our previous games,” said RYSA coach Mathu Eliud Mathu.
At BP grounds, home team and defending champions Kawangware United, fourth on the table with 18 points, will be aiming to climb into the top three with a win against visiting Team Umeme while second-placed Shauri Moyo Blue Stars cross swords with third-placed Jericho All Stars at Ziwani grounds.
