Tusker warmed up for the Kenyan Premier League weekend match against Sofapaka with a 4-3 win over National Under 20 team in a friendly match.

Former Gor Mahia striker, Timothy Otieno scored a hat-trick against the junior Harambee Stars who are preparing for a friendly game against Egypt.

Tusker will head into the Sunday’s tie with a dented ego, having laboured for 360 minutes without a goal.

The last time Sam Timbe’s men put the ball past the opposing goalkeeper was on February 14 in a 2-1 win over Nzoia Sugar at the Ruaraka Grounds.

The Brewers then played a 0-0 draw with Gor Mahia before losing by a solitary goal to Ulinzi Stars.

Tusker were held to yet another draw by Thika United last week same Sofapaka who played a barren draw with Kariobangi Sharks at Machakos Stadium.

Tusker are four points and six places behind Sofapaka who are seventh on the log with 10 points.
