Sunday

  1. Kariobangi Sharks vs Zoo FC – Camp Toyoyo – 11AM

Kariobangi Sharks will host Zoo FC at the Camp Toyoyo in the first match of the day. Zoo will however be without their talismanic forward Nicholas Kipkirui who is set to miss three matches as he is suspended.

Zoo warmed up to the clash with a 2-0 win over Finlays in Kericho on Thursday 2nd August and Assistant Coach Herman Iswekha is confident they will pick the maximum points in Nairobi.

“We know Sharks is never an easy opponent for us but we have prepared very well for the clash and we will be going for the three points in Nairobi. Unfortunately, our top scorer Kipkirui is suspended but we have capable replacements. Bernard Odhiambo is back and has been sharp in training. That is a big boost for us ahead of the match.”- Zoo Assistant Coach Harman Iswekha
