Kenya Premier League (KPL) table 2018/2019 leaders Mathare United will be hosting struggling Kenya Commercial Bank (KCB) in the new Year’s first match at Moi Sports Centre, Kasarani on Wednesday.
Struggling KPL champions Gor Mahia will be hosting Chemelil Sugar as they seek to redeem their winning ways.
A win for Mathare, the Slum Boys will extend their points to 13. The lead may short live if Western Stima fails to collect maximum points in Kisumu when they host 2009 champions Sofapaka.
The bankers are winless in this campaign as pressure continues to mount on coach Frank Ouna and his new look technical bench.
John Kamau makes a return as Posta Rangers head coach, seeking to halt the team’s skid this term against AFC Leopards.
Kamau has replaced Sammy “Pamzo” Omollo whose contract expired last month. He will be assisted by former Kenyan internationals Pascal Ochieng and Edward Kauka.
But focus will be on champions Gor Mahia after falling to Kariobangi Sharks on Saturday by a solitary gaol when both teams returned into local football after they were eliminated from continental leagues.
