Kenya: KCB Tackle Relegation Threatened Blazers At Nyayo

LEAGUE leaders KCB Lions tackle lowly Blazers at the Nyayo Stadium gymnasium tomorrow as the 2012 regular season enters its last weekend of action.

Nothing changes should Lions, who are on top with 41 points, lose the tie against a team staring relegation in the face. The pressure is on Blazers who must win the match to remain hopeful about top action next year.

Reigning champions Co-operative Bank of Kenya who have lost six matches and are fourth on 36 points play Strathmore University in what will be a fiercely fought encounter.

The students will follow up the tie with a clash against Ulinzi Warriors. Thunder, already assured of a play-off spot, have two matches against Masinde Muliro University of Agriculture and Technology (MMUST) and Ulinzi and hope to improve on their seventh placing.

In the ladies matches, former national champions Kenya Ports Authority (KPA) will move up to the top spot with wins in their Western Kenya tour, where they tackle Western Delight at the Kakamega Police Canteen courts. Strathmore University have two matches against NYTA Shimba whom they beat in Mombasa last weekend and rivals Sprite Storms.

Champions Eagle Wings will play Shimba in their first fixture since returning from Abidjan, Ivory Coast. In the lower division, Upper Hill lock horns with Kenyatta University "Pirates" who are eyeing a play off spot, while leaders Nairobi Aviation College have a date with Umoja.
