Former premiership champions Ulinzi Stars host Chemelil Sugar on Wednesday in a rescheduled match at Afraha Stadium, Nakuru.

Ulinzi did not get their way to have the match postponed after KPL rejected the same insisting they must play on Wednesday.

Coach Salim Ali had asked the league company to give his side some time off to rest as they have just arrived back home after taking part in the World Military Games held in Azerbaijan.

Speaking ahead of the fixture, Ulinzi Stars captain Evans Amuoka said they have learnt a lot during their trip in Azerbaijan and expect that this experience will be of great help in their premiership matches.

“We faced very tough opposition in the military games which has made us better and we are confident this will push us in the league,” Amuoka told Goal.

Chemelil go into the match on the back of a 2-0 defeat to Gor Mahia last Wednesday and will be determined to return back to winning ways while at the same time cautious not to give away everything ahead of the coming weekend fixture against Bandari at home.
