Co-operative Bank of Kenya face Lions in a Premier League clash at Nyayo National Stadium gymnasium on Sunday.
The bankers, who have seven points from four games, will move to joint second position with Blades if they win this tie. They have a strong fire-power that should overwhelm Lions, a team on a sad slide having lost all their five opening matches.
Thunder will square off with Trailblazers, who are above them in sixth position with two wins and three losses. Griffin Ligare remains very much the team’s main points provider but it will not be a walk in the park.
Reigning national champions Equity Bank play Kenyatta University “Oryx” in a women’s clash where victory will take them to the top of the standings.
Equity have won their two opening matches while the students are winless in as many matches.
Riding on the shoulders of three national team stars Hilda Indasi, Samba Mjomba and Mercy Wanyama, Equity should have little problems in their quest for maximum points.
The other showdown will see bottom-placed Co-op Bank meet Storms. Storms, who failed to make the play offs last year, have won one match and lost the other while the bankers have lost their only tie played so far.
There will also be a total of 14 lower division matches in both the men and women categories to be played at Nyayo Stadium and Upper Hill School.
