Though history and form book doesn’t favour the Dockers ahead of the anticipated clash, the entry of coach Paul Nkata to the mix in this fixture makes the clash even more interesting.
Nkata guided the brewers to the league podium last season before he crossed over to Bandari early this year. Having managed most of the players he will be facing on Sunday with his new side, is something that is giving Tusker tactician, George ‘Best’ Nsimbe sleepless nights ahead of the duel.
Nsimbe, a Ugandan born of Kenyan father has voiced his fears ahead of the clash with his compatriot. “We have a fit squad. But we are going to face a team handled by the former club coach which means he understands most of the players here apart from the few who we acquired this season.
“They (Bandari coaches) also watched us during our GOtv Shield match in Mombasa but we will do all we can to get a positive result from the match."
Tusker are top of the table with 28 points while Bandari are lying a distant ninth with only 19 points from 14 matches.
