Fast stumbling Nakumatt will hope to turn around a season going wayward when they take on promotion hopefuls KCB at Ruaraka from 1pm on Saturday 29 October when the National Super League (NSL) action continues.
The big spenders have blown away eight vital points in their last four games after being forced to uncharacteristic draws by Nakuru AllStars, Nairobi Stima and FC Talanta. A barren draw against a tough Kariobangi Sharks then followed, leaving the side placed third with 59 points, a whole 17 points behind unbeaten Nzoia United.
Eight games for Saturday
KCB are eight points adrift of Nakumatt and will hope to build on their 1-0 win over Oserian last weekend to narrow the three point gap enjoyed by fifth placed Vihiga United.
Though the Nakumatt – KCB tie will take center stage on Saturday, seven other games will be in the offing on the same day. The round of 31 kicked off on Friday when Kisumu based Palos downed FC Talanta 1-0 at the Moi Stadium, Kisumu.
Nzoia in action
League leaders Nzoia United and second placed Zoo FC of Kericho will be home to Police FC and Ligi Ndogo at the Sudi Stadium and Kericho Green Stadium, respectively as fifth placed Vihiga United will be up against Wazito FC at the Camp Toyoyo from 3pm EAT.
Agrochemicals FC and Bidco United, placed eighth and ninth, will be home to Nairobi Stima and Shabana, in games planned for Furaha and Thika Sub County Stadium, correspondingly.
Two other sides – Modern Coast Rangers and St. Josephs will be Saturday hosts, taking on MOSCA and Oserian at Mbaraki and Afraha Stadium respectively.
One final tie will bring round 31 to an end on Sunday when fourth placed Kariobangi Sharks face off with Nakuru AllStars at Camp Toyoyo from 3pm.
