Western Stima are keen on remaining fit ahead of the 2017 Kenyan Premier League kick-off and they have lined up a friendly match against Kakamega High School on Friday.
The match will be played at the School’s ground and Western Stima head coach Henry Omino will be using it to further fine-tune his squad as they wait for season’s start.
He is not comfortable with the KPL kick-off delay but he insists that he can still use the time to sharpen his team.
"Actually nobody likes what is going on right now, we love the game and we could be on the pitch playing. I believe there will be a solution soon, because it is not good to be on the cold for so long.
"Yes, it has given us more time to perfect our techniques as we aim to do our best in the league this season,” he told Goal earlier on.
KPL clubs across the country have been left with no option other than to toil in friendly matches as they wait for the end of FKF-KPL stalemate, which has caused the massive delay of the league commencement.
Posta Rangers also played to a 1-1 draw against Mathare United at the Goan Institute ground today (Thursday). Joseph Kuria of Rangers canceled Daniel Mwaura’s goal in the second half to see both teams walk home with equal results.
Later on, Kennedy Ayako, Tyson Otieno and Elijah Mwanzia scored one goal each for the Slum Boys to seal a 3-1 victory against National Super League side Moyas at the same venue.
The Francis Kimanzi coached outfit will play KCB tomorrow (Friday) in another build up match slated for 8am at Jericho’s Camp Toyoyo grounds.
