Former Kenya Cup champions Kenya Harlequin are at home to Kabras Sugar in a match day 12 fixture that is of significance to the playoff race.
Quins are currently placed tenth, their playoff chances long extinct but they have the opportunity to throw a spanner in the works and complicate, may be put paid to the sugarmen’s chances.
Depending on their availability, club stalwarts Wilson Kopondo and Sidney Ashioya will be tasked with inspiring the quartered shirts to play the game of their lives, register a win and lift the gloom that has prevailed at the RFUEA Grounds this season. Extra motivation for them is in facing their former players Ernest Ngong, Nick Barasa and Edwin Achayo who all decamped to Kabras.
Kabras Sugar may not have the rich history that Quins does, but they certainly have the form that their opponents have failed to deliver this season.
They lie fourth on the log with two matches to spare. It’s almost hard to believe that they are in their maiden season. They hold a slender two point lead over fifth placed Mwamba and are firmly within the sights of sixth placed Resolution Impala Saracens. With that in mind, they are only too aware of the task at hand and will look to go all out for a bonus point win to keep them securely in fourth place ahead of the final round of matches on February 21.
This match kicks off at 4.00pm on Saturday 14 February.
