Mean Machine have set sights on making a return to the Kenya Cup league, says head coach Phelim Kidakwa. 

The University of Nairobi side was relegated from the country’s top tier after the conclusion of the 2016/17 season and Kidakwa is confident that they will bounce back.

“The boys have really increased their tempo and we should expect to see Machine back in the Kenya Cup during the 2018/19 season,”says Kidakwa.

Machine finished fourth at this year’s Impala Floodlit tournament after going down to Homeboyz in the 3rd place playoff.

The side will start life in the lower tier with an away clash to Catholic University Monks.
