KCB host Muhoroni
KCB and Muhoroni Youth, the two sides with the worst form in the Kenyan Premier League going into the 18th round of matches, clash on Sunday.
The bankers go into the game on the back of the demoralising 3-1 thumping at the hands of Gor Mahia at the Nairobi City Stadium, but they will be more concerned by their recent run which has seen them win only once in the last five attempts.
Their last win, incidentally, was against Muhoroni Youth, 2-1 in the first leg on Saturday 5 May – and they have conceded nine goals while managing to score five in their last five games.
Coach James Omondi says despite the dip, he hopes the team will bounce back. He will, however, be without his top scorer Paul Mungai who is nursing a back injury.
“I am not so at ease with our results lately but I am sure we will bounce back in the Muhoroni Youth game. However, we will have to do that without Mungai who is out with a back injury; we have other good players to replace him well anyway,” he said.
Muhoroni have managed just one point in their last five matches, that coming in their 2-2 draw with Sofapaka on Friday 6 July.
Coach Alfred Imonje will be more concerned with the leaky defence that has conceded 10 goals in that period – while the attackers have also not been doing so well, managing just four goals in the last five outings.
Imonje admits he will be going all out for a win in the game and he will be buoyed with a fully fit and well-rested squad.
“I don’t have any injury concerns ahead of the game. All my players are available; we just want to furnish a few areas before the match as we will be attempting a go at all the three points,” he said.
