Ulinzi Stars coach Dunstan Nyaudo is looking forward to carrying on with a fine run of form when they host Gor Mahia on Sunday.

Ulinzi Stars are set to host the league leaders at Afraha Stadium on the same day that Gor Mahia are also set to play English Championship side Hull City.

It remains to be seen how Kenyan Premier League Limited will navigate through the congested fixtures, more so for Gor Mahia.

A section of Gor Mahia fans have raised their concerns with the non-competitive Hull City game set for May 13 at Kasarani Stadium.

Only two points separate Gor Mahia and second-placed Ulinzi Stars, who have 25 points from 14 games having played three more than K’Ogalo.

“It will be an interesting match, most definitely, because they have been doing well and we are also in good form so I am sure the fans will get a very entertaining game. Most importantly we want to keep our shape and confidence intact ahead of this game," Nyaudo told the club's official website.

“We showed a good fighting spirit against Nzoia Sugar, just as we did in the earlier matches and that is the same I hope to see against Gor Mahia. It is in such big games that you see the full potential of your players and I know they are also looking forward to it.”

Gor Mahia picked maximum points following a 1-0 victory in the last league meeting, though Ulinzi Stars twice came from behind to pick a point in the first leg that ended 2-2.
