The Star (Kenya) - - Sports -

RAYMOND OTIENO/ For­mer Kenya Cup side, Thika and Kisumu are set to play their first matches to­mor­row as the Kenya Cup II en­ters match Day 2. Six more matches have been lined up for the day af­ter a high paced first round of the league. The two sides missed ac­tion dur­ing the first round af­ter their op­po­nents failed to turn up.

KeMU and Bun­goma Sharks asked for post­pone­ments due to fi­nan­cial prob­lems and low player turnout re­spec­tively. Thika will open their cam­paign away against sec­ond-placed Mom­basa Club. Both sides had a short stint at the Kenya Cup but were rel­e­gated due to their con­stant losses in the league. Kisumu play host to fifth-placed Moi Univer­sity at Mam­boleo Show­ground.

Kisumu team man­ager Obiet Kiz­ito is, how­ever, wor­ried that Moi Univer­sity may not show up. Should they fail, Kisumu will face USIU on Novem­ber 19 in their third league match, hav­ing not played the first two matches. League lead­ers Catholic Monks hope to ex­tend their lead as they take on JKUAT Cougars in Juja while fourth-placed Univer­sity of El­doret will be the guests of sixth- placed USIU.
