After languishing at the bottom of table for over a month and half month, Kayole Asubuhi appear confident of downing Kawangware United in their Super 8 Premier League weekend match.
Though they come into this match as underdogs, the 2016 champions expect to emerge victorious to leap from the bottom and settle at 14th place with 18 points. A win however will not be a walk in the park for the latter as their opponents are enjoying a good run having won their last two matches.
