This Friday brings arguably the biggest match of the Kenya Premier League weekend as league leaders KCB host Tusker FC.
The bankers are sitting at the top of the league standings with 36 points, but after three successive draws for Tusker they are only one point ahead of their opponents.
The brewers on the other hand have not won in their last 3 games but remain on course for a chance to win a first league title since 2016.
Tusker FC coach Robert Matano maintains that despite the recent dropping of points, they still stand a chance.
“I feel like we lost that game against Wazito but the important thing is that we learn from the mistakes we made and switch our focus to the next game.
“The break due to the lockdown slowed down our pace and we are not yet back to full groove but I saw improvements and we are slowly coming back,” Matano told SportPesa’s blog.
These two sides met as recently as 11 days ago in the league and neither side managed to score as they shared the spoils in a barren draw.
Either side of that draw, Tusker have played out to two other stalemates against Nairobi City Stars and Wazito last Friday.
“We have been working to rectify our mistakes and prepare for the KCB clash the best way that we can, we are ready to give it our all.
“Getting another draw is not what we want as a club, so we have to go for all three points this Friday,” Matano concluded.
