The Kenya Premier League midweek action resumes as bottom of the table Mathare United hosts title-chasing KCB FC.

Bottom of the table Mathare United host KCB FC in a rearranged Kenya Premier League fixture on Wednsesday, hoping to overturn their torrid season.

On Monday, the slum boys sacked coach Salim Ali, a long-serving member of their technical bench due to their dismal performance thus far.

His replacement, Frank Ouna, was once head coach at KCB and his first assignment sees him go up against his former employers in desperate need for a win.

The bankers are in fourth place on the log and a win for them will see them leapfrog Kariobangi Sharks and AFC Leopards into second place.

The expulsion of match-fixing Zoo from the league condemned Mathare to the tail-end of the table and nothing less than a win will move them.

The hosts are fresh off a barren draw with second from bottom Vihiga United, while KCB also shared the spoils by the same score-line against league leaders Tusker FC.

What time does Mathare vs KCB start?

The game kicks off at 3pm at the Ruaraka Grounds.

Mathare vs KCB prediction
