Mathare and Sony fight for Top 8

Former Tusker Premier League champions Mathare United will be hoping to bounce back from their 4-2 defeat to AFC Leopards when they lock horns with Sony Sugar in Saturday’s final match of the 2012 season, at MISC, Kasarani.

Both teams are tied on 38 points together with ninth-placed Chemelil Sugar, and are targeting to qualify for next term’s Top Eight tournament.

Sony, however, have a slight edge courtesy of goal superiority. The Millers registered a narrow 1-0 win over relegation bound Oserian last weekend and they will hope to carry their form into this crucial match.

Sony will go into the contest as favorites having beaten the Slum Boys 3-1 in the reverse fixture, but they will be facing an acid test against a wounded Mathare, whose 11-game unbeaten record was snapped in Mumias.

Even though both of the teams are fully aware of what lies ahead of them, as a win for either side will secure them a Top Eight tourney ticket, the Nairobi-based side will have to do without suspended defender John Odhiambo.

Probable starting line-ups:

Mathare: Martin Musalia (GK), Athman Buki, Kennedy Omogi, Lloyd Wahome, Anthony Kimani (Cpt), Dennis Nzomo, Joseph Mwangi, Vincent Okello, Francis Ouma, Jesse Were, Andrew Tololwa.

Subs: Robert Mboya (GK), Ernest Wendo, Joseph Mwangi, Kevin Odongo, Elvis Nandwa, Kelvin Omondi, Daniel Mwaura.

Sony: Wilson Obungu (GK), Wycliffe Nyangech, Andrew Waiswa, Alfred Onyango, Sylvester Wanyama (Cpt), Robert Ouma, Dennis Okoth, Francis Ochola, Vincent Ogutu, Jimmy Kulaba, Ishmael Dunga.

Subs: Collins Oduor (GK), Joseph Omweri, Tumba Kilonzo, Marwa Chamberi, Victor Ochieng, Enock Agwanda, John Kiplangat.
