Shauri Moyo Sportiff and Shauri Moyo Blue Stars go head to head in a Super 8 Premier League derby on Sunday 4 August at City Stadium from 3: 30 PM.

After leaving fans craving for goals in their first-leg encounter which ended 0-0, the two East Conference sides will be at it again to determine who takes home the neighborhood bragging rights.

This duel is among seven other enticing second-leg match-ups on the menu this weekend as the popular grass root league enters round 19.

Debutants Sportiff (21 points) who have won 5 games and drawn 6 times head into the match as underdogs by virtue of experience in the league against 9th place Blue Stars (18).

Sportiff who have a game in hand against Metro Sports will be looking to rectify their mistakes in their previous game where they lost 2-1 against RYSA.

Speaking ahead of the tie, Sportiff coach Collins Omondi said they are under no pressure to prove themselves in the high stakes derby but promised great football for the fans.

He said: “There’s no pressure at all from our side, this is just like any other league game. We have come far as a team and we aim to go further even further so fans should expect an entertaining game.”

Blue Stars who have drawn twice and lost once in their last three games will be looking to put the genie back into the bottle and bag their first win in nine attempts.

After denying on-form TUK in a goalless draw last time out, Blue Stars who have won 5 and drawn on three occasions will be confident of posting positive results.

At Ziwani grounds, Team Umeme coach and former Posta Ranger man Aggrey Ongoli will be missing the services of their midfield dynamo Ramadham Emeka when they welcome relegation-threatened RYSA.

After staring for the Ziwani based outfit in the ongoing Super 8 League for the past three seasons Emeka has secured sports scholarship at Park University in the USA.

Elsewhere, second-place Makadara Junior League SA (37) will be away to Makongeni Sports grounds seeking to grind out full match points against 10th place Makongeni Sports Association (MASA to dethrone leaders Jericho All Stars (37) from the helm.

Riruta BP grounds in Kawangware will host a doubleheader where Leads United entertains Metro Sports in a lunchtime kick-off. At the same venue struggling former champions and bottom-placed Kayole Asubuhi (12 points) will be looking to extricate themselves from the relegation quicksand when they play on-form cup holders Kawangware United (36) from 3 PM.

NYSA and Zamalek host Rongai All-Stars and Melta at Drive Inn and Ngong Posta grounds respectively.
