Nairobi - Kenyan Premier League (KPL) games resume this weekend
across the country with three matches lined-up for Saturday.
Apart from Saturday's league matches, KPL also sanctioned
five Premiership games nationwide in a move aimed at ensuring the season would
end without disruption.
Former champions, AFC Leopards, who recently lost 0-1 to
Mathare United at Nyayo Stadium, will host third placed Tusker Football Club at
Machakos Stadium while second placed Chemelil Sugar entertains Thika United at
Chemelil Stadium with Ulinzi Stars battling out with KCB at Afraha Stadium on
All the three matches have been planned for 1500 hrs
On Sunday, defending champions, Gor Mahia, who also
happen to be the current log leaders, will travel for a date with Sony Sugar at
Afraha in a match that promises fireworks.
Sony Sugar come into this crucial match boasting a 1-1
away draw to Western Stima last week while the defending champions are also on
cloud nine following their convincing 3-0 massacre of Muhoroni Youth.
Elsewhere across the country on Sunday, fifth placed
Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) will host Mathare United at Nyayo Stadium while
fourth-placed Sofapaka entertains Western Stima at Machakos Stadium.
Smarting from a 0-3 drubbing by Gor Mahia last week,
Muhoroni Youth will be hosting Bandari Muhoroni what is
likely to bean evenly balanced match.
Earlier on last week, Bandari FC were held to a 1 - 1
draw by Ulinzi Stars, and this weekend, they would want to collect maximum points
in order to improve on their league standing.
Log anchors, Top Fry Nakuru, travel to City Stars at
Nyayo Stadium in a match widely tipped to go City Stars' way considering that
they will be playing at their own backyard.
The match also promises thrilling action as both teams
would want to walk away with the three valuable points in order to enhance
their chances of staying in the league next season.
Top Fry Nakuru are placed at the bottom 16 premiership
teams while City Stars are 12th.
