Tusker look to go top



Reigning champions Tusker will be looking to make up ground on leaders AFC Leopards whne they take on KCB at City stadium on Monday.

This will be another chance for the Brewers to take aim at the top slot in the standings as they are currently placed third, behind AFC Leopards and Gor Mahia respectively.

A win over KCB will therefore hand them the driving seat as they will be tied on points with current leaders AFC Leopards. A better goal difference will, however, place them at the helm of the standings.

Tusker FC will also be seeking to score more goals in bid to strength their competitive edge as the sunset days of the season beckons. They are expected to improve on their striking since that is where they have been lacking lately, having not netted a goal for the last 270 minutes.

Former Thika United forward Kenneth Wendo bore the brunt of this on Wednesday after dropping to the bench for their barren draw against 2009 champions Sofapaka.

KCB, on the other hand, will have to prove their might by maintaining consistency after their last match where they smacked AFC Leopards 2-0 at the Nyayo Stadium. The team, through head coach James Omondi, has vowed to go full throttle in attack during the match as their young squad has already shown will and capability.

The bankers have not announced any injuries in their squad and this is bound to be a morale booster for the side that is in dire need of points.

A win on Monday will see them bounce up to eighth on the standings, from their current 12th place.

Probable lineups:

Tusker: Boniface Oluoch (GK), Jockins Atudo, Joseph Shikokoti, Humphrey Okoti, David Ochieng, Frederick Onyango, Joshua Oyoo, Joseph Mbugi, Joseph Emeka, Dennis Mukaisi, Patrick Kagogo.

Substitutes: George Opiyo, Luke Ochieng, Frederick Ajwang, Maurice Odipo, Andrew Murunga, Kenneth Wendo, Obadiah Ndege

KCB: Caleb Adola (GK), Bethuel Warambo, Owuor Benedict, Joseph Kangata [Cpt], Dennis Omondi, Brian Osumba, Michael Oyando, Peter Wainaina, Geoffrey Maina, Paul Mungai, Clifford Alwanga.

Substitutes: Sammy Okinda [GK], Pius Adriano, Elvis Ayany, Dan Makori, Milton Milimo, Edwin Mwaura, Jacob Keli.
