Tim Bryett’s free flowing attacking football will on Sunday 17th be tested against Robert Matano’s combative and defensive play when Thika United host Ulinzi Stars at the Thika Municipal stadium at 3PM.
A win for either side will see a jump to second position in the KPL log.
Smarting from 2-3 loss against SOFAPAKA on Wednesday 13th that effectively ended their eight match unbeaten run, the milk men will not only be hunting for the first win in the month of May but they will also be trying halt the Soldiers dominance over them in recent years.
In the last 13 league encounters, Thika has only registered one win against Ulinzi’s four wins with the rest of the fixtures ending in draws.
Ulinzi who has failed to win in their last two matches registering a loss and a draw respectively will be going for nothing but a win in this match if they have to keep pace with leaders Gor Mahia.
“We must win against Thika on Sunday and there are no two ways about it. We have to maintain the same tempo with the teams at the top and at the moment since we have not won in two matches, we need to pick up three points in our next assignment.” James Saruni who is Ulinzi’s first choice keeper and deputy skipper to club’s official website.
John Makwata who has netted six times for the soldiers will be a man on a mission to keep pace in the golden boot race against Jacob Keli of AFC Leopards , Jesse Were of Tusker and Ali Abondo of Gor Mahia who have scored seven times.
