The Kenya Cup action will enter the penultimate stage this weekend with six matches expected to take place.
Kabras and KCB have already qualified for the semi-finals but they are still battling for the top spot. Kenya Harlequins, Nondies, Impala, Mwamba and Nakuru are all chasing for a place in the top six while Strathmore Leos, Mean Machine and Blak Blad are keen to avoid the chop.
Kabras will host Strathmore Leos at Kakamega Showground at 4 pm. This clash is important for both side as Kabras need maximum points from the clash to keep their hopes of finishing top of the log for the first time in history.
Strathmore, on the other hand, are in the danger zone and will be chasing a positive result in Kakamega to stay in the top tier.
Second-placed KCB and third-placed Kenya Harlequins will face off at KCB Sports Club in Ruaraka. KCB are targeting a double over Quins to continue piling pressure on leaders Kabras while Quins need a meaningful result to seal the third spot.
Nondies will host Mwamba at Jamhuri Grounds. The two sides are eager to return to playoffs having missed out last season.
Impala and Mean Machine will square it out at 4 PM at RFUEA Grounds with latter pushing for survival while the former is keen to play in the playoffs once again.
Nakuru will also be in need of bonus point win as they play Blak Blad at KU Grounds to boost their chances of returning to the playoffs after last years absence. They will face fierce rivalry from the students who are desperately in need of a win.
The early kick-off clash of the weekend will be the date between Homeboyz and Oilers which is more of a dead rubber as both sides are safe from relegation but cannot reach the playoffs. The match will be RFUEA at 2PM.
