Can Quins continue their resurgence as Kenya Cup heads into match day six?

A resurgent Kenya Harlequin will be out to make it two wins on the bounce when they come up against Stanbic Mwamba in a potentially exciting match day six fixture at the RFUEA Ground on Saturday 30 November 2019. The former champions went five matches winless until last weekend’s 25-15 home win over visiting Menengai Oilers lifted them off the Kenya Cup basement to ninth overall.  The hosts will be out to draw on the positives from last weekend’s outing when they take on a fifth placed Mwamba side who warmed up for this clash with a 27-17 home win over Nondescript last weekend at the Railway Club.

Over in the Rift Valley, Top Fry Nakuru go after a third win on the trot when they welcome Resolution Impala Saracens to the Nakuru Athletic Club on Saturday. Nakuru’s season appeared to be going awry as they lost their opening three fixtures and lingered close to the league basement. All this changed on Saturday 16 November 2019 when they overcame a 3-18 half time deficit to defeat Kenya Harlequin, incidentally coached by their tactician Dominque Habimana, 25-18.  They followed this up with a 23-10 win away to Western Bulls and will be looking to ruin Impala Head Coach Mitch Ocholla’s return to the Nakuru Athletic Club where he was in charge for two seasons.

The Kenya Cup’s youngest club, Menengai Oilers host the league’s oldest club, Nondescript, in another match day six fixture at the Moi Showground in Nakuru. Oilers started their campaign with three consecutive wins, climbing to a season high third on the log but have come unstuck in recent days, suffering two successive defeats that have seen them drop to their current ranking of sixth. Nondies on the other hand have managed one win in five outings and will be looking to get a positive result from Nakuru as they build their credentials for yet another stab at playoff qualification.

After losing their unbeaten record last weekend, third placed Homeboyz will be to return to winning ways when they host Kenyatta University’s Blak Blad at the Kenyatta University.
