A Vengeful Shark versus a Resurgent Miller: The Stage is Set for a Classic at Kasarani

Nzoia Sugar have only won one game this season, 3-1 against Kariobangi Sharks in the Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Premier League on December 11, 2021 at the Sudi Stadium in Bungoma then under the tutelage of former head coach Ibrahim Shikanda.

A Levis Okello hat-trick was all the Nzoia needed to record their only win of the season after 18 games so far, but things have not  been better since then as was expected after the win.

Instead, it has been a photocopy of the results before the Kariobangi Sharks game, draws and losses with wins only coming up in pre-match press conferences.

And just like was on December 11 under Shikanda, the Millers go head to head with Sharks at the Kasarani Stadium on Saturday, February 25 as underdogs but this time under the stewardship of Salim Babu.

The former Kisumu All Stars coach was appointed by Nzoia at the end of last month and has been at the helm for two matches without recording a win, neither has he lost.

Babu has pulled off identical 1-1 draws against league leaders Kakamega Homeboyz and Nairobi City Stars in his backyard of Sudi and hopes that he can record his first win in charge of the Millers as they visit Sharks this weekend.

“We want to keep teams from getting maximum points from us. And the boys are up to the task. We are playing Kariobangi Sharks away and we are going to build on the City Stars match, it’s going to be a tough game, we want positive results,” Babu said.

Meanwhile having suffered a surprise loss away to Nzoia in the first leg, Kariobangi Sharks are all but determined to avenge the defeat and head into the game on the back of a 1-0 win over Kenya Police FC.

The William Muluya-coached side is third on the FKF Premier League log with 31 points, 13 rounds into the season while Nzoia who are having a torrid campaign are third from bottom with 12 points from 18 games.
