Top Fry Nakuru face Western Bulls at the Nakuru Athletic Club looking to build on last weekend’s 19-17 win away to champions Kabras Sugar as they seek to return to the Top Six playoffs and compete for a third Kenya Cup crown.
The former champions sit seventh on the log as a result of a patchy spell that has seen them win four, draw one and lose three of their eight fixtures to date. Consistency will be key for Enos Otieno’s charges if they are to work their way up the log.
The Wanyore must also guard against any form of complacency that may creep in as a result of last weekend’s triumph over the champions in Kakamega.
Geoff Ominde was their talisman last weekend and will once again be tasked with bringing out the best of the Wanyore.
Howard Okwemba’s Western Bulls sit 11th on the log, they are fighting the threat of relegation and as it stands, must win every match ahead of them. They do have a challenge on their hands but can exploit Nakuru’s rather unusual vulnerability this season, use it to their advantage and run off with a result to keep their hopes of staying in the Kenya Cup alive.
