The return leg match was initially scheduled to be played in Mumias but at the advice of the Confederation of African Football (Caf) it has been moved to Nairobi

Kenya Premier League (KPL) champions Tusker will play their return Champions League match against St.Michel of Seychelles at Moi Kasarani on Saturday.

The match was initially scheduled to be played in Mumias but at the advice of the Confederation of African Football (Caf) it has been moved to Nairobi.

According to Charles Obiny, a director of Tusker FC, Caf are uncomfortable with Mumias because it does not meet their standards.

"Initially we were to play the match in Mumias due to unavailability of a suitable venue in Nairobi. However, after further consultation Football Kenya Federation (Fkf) advised that the match be moved back to Nairobi because Mumias does not meet the required international standards," Obiny told Goal.com.

Tusker go into the return match with a head up after winning the first leg 4-1 in Seychelles.

However, despite the massive advantage coach Robert Matano has insisted that it is not yet done and his boys must take the return leg fixture seriously.

Tusker lost 5-4 on post match penalties at the weekend to Gor Mahia during their DSTV/ SuperSport Cup fixture at Nyayo Stadium.
