Nairobi City Stars coach Jan Koops will be out to get his maiden league win when they take on Kenyan Premier League champions Tusker in Friday’s match at Kasarani.

The Dutchman joined the club ten days ago and is yet to make an impact having lost his first match in charge to Sofapaka in GOtv Shield Cup.

City Stars are expected to go all out in search for victory as they eye a top eight finish this season. They have the men to help them get victory with Ugandan duo of Bruno Sserunkuma and Jimmy Bagaye leading their attack.

The team is also well experienced at the back where John Amboko has proved un-beatable in previous encounters. Tusker need maximum points as they seek to win the league title for third year in a row.

Having been eliminated from GOtv Cup, the brewers' have only the league to play for. The league’s top scorer Jesse Were, Andrew Tololwa and Ugandan forward Robert Omunuk will lead Tusker's attacks.
