Police, Sailors highlight KHU weekend league action
Kenya Police hockey club head coach Peter Mugambi is optimistic his side will take maximum points when they visit Sailors Sunday morning at City Park in Nairobi, in what will be their first leg last match of the Kenya Hockey Union Premier League 2022 season.
Police, who have won six matches, are second on the 10-team league standings with 19 points after playing eight matches, a point behind Butali.
Speaking to Citizen Digital, the tactician said they have been working hard to sharpen their attack.
“The squad is stable, currently as we have no injuries. We have gone an extra mile to improve on our finishing strategies, and I believe we will win. Come Sunday we want nothing more than a win,” said Mugambi.
In their last fixture, they defeated Strathmore 2-1, while Sailors who are fifth on log with 11 points after playing seven matches, lost 2-1 to Butali.
At the same venue, mid-day, Wazalendo will be without their captain Cliffe Omari, midfielder Danstone Baraza and forward injured Sutcliffe Usagi when they visit western giants, Butali.
Last weekend, Strathmore trounced Wazalendo 4-1 at City Park, dragging their title chase behind while at the same time, their opponents Butali continued with a good run beating Sailors to lead the log.
Following the seven matches, Wazalendo are fourth on log with 13 points while Strathmore are third on the table with a similar tally.
Late in the evening, Sharks will be hosting USIU with hopes to escape the relegation bracket.
They lost to Police 2-1 during their last KHU fixture, results that saw them remain on position eight of the log.
Sunday’s matches will wind up the first leg fixtures for Butali, Strathmore and Police.
