Match Preview


The two sides shared the points last season; the mail men won the first leg with the former champions winning the second.  In the two games played, Rangers have managed to collect three points, but conceding in every match is something that will worry coach ‘Pamzo’, who is known for his defensive approach.

A win for Posta Rangers will lift them from current thirteenth position to probably top five depending with the way teams above them play. After dropping points against Ulinzi Stars last weekend, Mathare United is aware that three points is what can take the team to either first position, depending with the way Western Stima play, or retain their current second position.

The team has managed to score five goals in the three games played, conceding none, something that has definitely gone down well with coach Kimanzi. However, he has to ensure he gets it right against this unpredictable Rangers side. In their past twelve outings, Rangers have won thrice, drawn seven times and lost three times.
