The Sharks will be looking to put back their disappointing FKF Premier League outing against Sofapaka when they face Tusker FC this Saturday at Nyayo Stadium.
It is expected to be a tough game against an opponent that is second on the log and looking to collect all three points to keep their hopes alive.
William Muluya’s charges have struggled recently winning only one of their last five games. The latest win came in the slum derby when Tyson Otieno scored a brace from the spot in a game that ended in a 2-1 score line.
Meanwhile, Tusker has only lost one game in the last five fixtures. The loss came against Nzoia Sugar at the dreaded Sudi Stadium in Bungoma.
Coach Muluhya will hope that his top scorer, Moses Shikanda makes the squad as the team has struggled for goals since he got injured.
Julius Masaba has also been missing due to an injury but has trained this week implying that he might make it at least to the bench. Masaba has been crucial for Sharks this season due to his versatility. He has played as a wingback, fullback, and forward which underscores his willingness to always help the team get results.
Special attention will be directed at coach William Muluya to see which player he will elevate to the first team this weekend.
So far, Muluhya has promoted six players from the youth side and all of them have already debuted for the first team.
The six players are Isaac Wasambo, Sigmunn Maina, Humphrey Aroko, Matthew Kibiwot, Ghai Panhol, and Geoffrey Onyango.
Azam TV will beam the match live on the screens after they entered an agreement with the Federation that accorded them the rights to broadcast two games – Kariobangi Sharks vs Tusker, and Gor Mahia vs AFC Leopards.
The deal is worth about Kes 8 million and the Sharks will walk away with Kes 300,000.
The Sharks are 11th on the log after 29 games having won 9, drawn 10, and lost 10 too.
