Champions Police are gunning for their second win of the season when they face Wazalendo today at City Park as the Kenya Hockey Union men’s Premier League enters its third round.
Police launched their title defence last weekend on a positive note, beating Nakuru Club 2-1 and will be hoping to extend the good start. Police head coach Patrick Mugambi has already cautioned his players not to be complacent. “This is going to be a tough game as Wazalendo will be seeking to prove a point against us. Nonetheless, we will give our best.”
Police are likely to miss the services of their attacking midfielder Willis Okeyo who picked a knock in their previous game. “Okeyo will face a late fitness test as he picked a knock against Nakuru last week and it is my hope that he recovers. It was not a serious one though I have enough players who can fill his position in case the medics confirm he is unfit to play,” said the coach. The law enforcers reaped four points from Wazalendo last season as the first leg encounter ended in a 3-3 draw before registering a 4-1 win in the second leg. Greensharks play Parkroad Badgers next while reigning champions Telkom entertain Chase Amira in the women’s tie. After falling 2-1 to Police last weekend, Nakuru are hoping to bounce back to winning ways when they host Nairobi Sikh Union. Away in Kakamega, hosts Western Jaguars wrap up today’s fixtures with a match against KCA University.
On Sunday, Butali Warriors face Parkroad Badgers at City Park. Butali beat Nairobi Sikh 1-0 in their opening match last weekend. Greensharks will complete their double against Parklands SC.
