Ulinzi and Muhoroni Youth will be locking horns on Friday afternoon with both sides itching to get a win to help them in their quest to continue climbing up the league table.
Ulinzi Stars will be facing Muhoroni Youth at the dreaded Muhoroni Stadium hoping to maintain the winning momentum after finally recording their first victory with a win over Sofapaka last Sunday.
The Soldiers have taken time to adapt to new head coach Antony ‘Modo’ Kimani’s methods of keeping the ball and dominating the possession game, as they attempt to move away from previous incumbent Bernard Mwalala’s ideas of being compact and being physically and defensively resolute.

The Kenyan right winger joined Chelsea as an Under 10 and spent close to a decade with the Blues before he was deemed surplus to requirements.
As a result, they failed to register a win in each of their opening three fixtures but were relieved following their maiden victory of the season over the Batoto ba Mungu.
They will however have their work cut out to beat Muhoroni, who have also proven to be defensively resolute this season, although they are struggling to create a load of chances from open play.

The Harambee Stars defender had a decent individual outing despite his side's 4-2 humiliation.
The side have relied on set piece situations to try and create chances, using Chris Wesonga’s excellent right foot to whip in balls that the opposition find problems dealing with.
Muhoroni have kept two clean sheets this season, and Ezekiel Onyango has looked impressive in goal since winning his place back in the side after he played no part in the last nine games of the season as he picked up a knock, which allowed backup keeper Tom Muthomi to play a key part in helping the side avoid the drop.

Mwendwa opened up on plans to make Harambee Stars competitive in time for the 2027 AFCON.
Against Tusker, his shot-stopping capabilities denied players like diminutive striker Erick Kapaito from getting off the mark for the Ruaraka-based outfit as he kept the score respectable in the 1-0 loss.
They have also relied on their home advantage, as sides have generally tended to struggle to get any points after making the trip to Got Alila, including giant clubs such as Gor Mahia and Tusker.

Olunga and Coutinho got to link up for the first time since the Brazilian’s arrival in Qatar as both players inspired Al Duhail to get back to winning ways.
“Tusker punished us a little but I hope we will correct it. I think the coach knows that the four games we have played so far have given us a platform to prepare well for the game on Friday,” Muhoroni captain Collins Neto said.
“Preparations have been good, the boys have trained well, there are no injuries,” head coach Charles Odera said.

Odera has insisted that his side is creating a lot of chances, but failing to put them in the back of the net.
Ulinzi will be hoping that the hill does not prove too steep for them, as they lost 3-2 in April, incidentally, the last time they visited the ground.
The Soldiers will hope Boniface Muchiri will be able to build on from his inspired performance which helped them get their first win of the season.
06:23 - 20.09.2023
After growing up in Kenya and dazzling with his football skills, the exciting 14-year-old attacking midfielder managed to earn a trial at English club Bristol City.
Muchiri’s pace, trickery, set piece deliveries, ability to take his man when in one-on-one as well as his crossing will be vital if the side is to maintain its return to winning ways.
