Kabras Sugar host Menengai Cream Homeboyz in what is undoubtedly the match of the day on Kenya Cup match eight. This match takes place at the Kakamega Showground and is expected to be a potentially explosive encounter.Matches between the two sides are never dull and it will be recalled that Kabras rallied to edge the deejays 22-17 in Kenya Cup semifinal action at the Jamhuri Park on Saturday 8 April 2017,avenging a 34-22 loss at the same venue a month earlier.
Kabras are unbeaten all season with seven wins from seven and trail champions KCB by a solitary point. They warmed up for this fixture with an authoritative 33-17 win away to Resolution Impala Saracens last weekend while Homeboyz defeated Mwamba 29-14 at the Jamhuri Park.
There is lots at stake in this encounter, Kabras keen to stay unbeaten but more importantly build more distance between them and the deejays in the quest to secure a home semifinal at the close of the regular season but the deejays will have other ideas.
Other matches on the day see the Strathmore Leos host Top Fry Nakuru at USIU as champions KCB welcome Nondescript to the KCB Sports Club in Ruaraka.
Resolution Impala Saracens will be looking to bounce back from last weekend’s home defeat to Kabras when they face Blak Blad at the Kenyatta University as SportPesa Quins host Regional Logistics Mombasa in a relatively straight forward fixture at the RFUEA Ground.
