Kenya Cup action continues with match day six action on Saturday 15 January 2022 with six matches taking place in Nairobi, Nakuru and Kakamega.
With the games coming in thick and fast, the focus this weekend is on the lower end of the table where former champions Topfry Nakuru and Impala Saracens occupy the last two places and have a handful of games to turn around their season.
Nakuru, champions in 2013 and 2014 currently sit in 11th place, having amassed two points after drawing one and losing four of their five outings to date. They have an uphill battle against 1983 champions Mwamba in the early kickoff at the RFUEA Ground. Mwamba come into this game on a high, having claimed their first win of the season last weekend when they defeat Blak Blad 28-10 in Ruaraka and will be out to replicate that performance when they play a Nakuru side that lost 33-15 last weekend to Homeboyz.
Impala Saracens, ten time Kenya Cup champions find themselves in unfamiliar territory, occupying the 12th and last place in the country’s top tier. They have lost all five of their outings to date, and are yet to pick up a point. They head into Saturday’s home clash against Blak Blad only too aware that another loss further jeopardizes their chances of maintaining their 25 year stay in the Kenya Cup. They will be out to get their season on track with a massive performance against the varsity students as they fight to avoid relegation for the first time since 1994. Blak Blad will on the other hand be other to pick up another win and put daylight between them and the relegation zone.
Over at the Ngong Racecourse, seventeen time champions Nondescripts host KCB while Kenya Harlequin and Strathmore Leos will face off in the top bill at the RFUEA Ground.
