Tusker did not start the season well after struggling to win matches but in recent outings, they have been collecting maximum points.

The Brewers’ midfielder Humphrey Mieno has, however, admitted they are anticipating a tough game against the Nakuru-based side.

“We had been struggling to get back-to-back wins but now we have managed to balance on the right track, we need to take it a game at a time and maintain our focus,” Mieno told the club’s official website ahead of the fixture.

“It will be a tough challenge against Ulinzi [Stars] because they have always been a difficult opponent. They have been changing their style of play to try and keep more of the ball in possession and play short passes but we will be ready to tackle them.”

Probable XI for Tusker: Matasi, Monyi, Kirenge, Oruchum, Asike, Mieno, Ouma, Luvanda, Mwinyi, Joshua, Njuguna.

PositionUlinzi Stars Squad
Goalkeepers Stephen Ochieng, James Saruni, and Jackton Odhiambo.

Ulinzi Stars will come into the game having beaten Wazito FC 1-0 in their last assignment and returning coach Benjamin Nyangweso is confident they will upset the defending champions.

“We are coming into the Tusker game with a lot of confidence, we have trained well and the morale in camp is very high,” Nyangweso told GOAL. “We know they beat us in the first round meeting, and our main focus is to earn revenge.”

The Soldiers will most likely parade their new attacking midfielder Stephen Etyang, who recently joined the team from Kakamega Homeboyz.

Probable XI for Ulinzi: Saruni, Birgen, Mwale, Ouma, Muchika, Ongoma, Omondi, Shambi, Boraafya, Simuyu, Masita.

Match Preview

Tusker have earned 10 points from their last four matches and they will be keen to seal the double over the Soldiers, whom they hammered 4-1 in the first round meeting.

Last season, the first meeting ended in a 1-1 draw before Tusker recovered to haul maximum points in the second round meeting after managing a 1-0 victory while in the 2019 season, the first meeting ended in a 1-1 draw before Ulinzi won the second meeting 1-0.

While Tusker have won their last two matches in the top-flight – 1-0 against Bandari and 2-0 against the same side, Ulinzi drew 2-2 against promoted side Kenya Police before recovering to floor Wazito 1-0.

Tusker are currently sitting in position seven of the 18-team table with 26 points from 16 matches while Ulinzi are placed 11th after collecting 21 points from 15 outings.
