This match might as well determine the fate of coach George 'Best' Nsimbe, who has failed to register a single win in five competitive outings. This man has suffered four defeats out of five matches, conceding eleven goals in the process.
Under the new technical bench, the sugar millers have managed to collect four points this season. After winning 2-0 away, Chemelil were held to a 1-1 draw later at home. Nevertheless, coach Nsimbe MUST win this one for the brewers’ or he will face the sack.
PLAYERS TO WATCH
Tusker: Shipping in seven goals in just two matches is not funny at all to a defending champion, and Eugine Asike should find a way to make the defense compact. The midfield is not working, and Hashim Sempala should also wake up and try to stop the attacks by the opponents.
Chemelil: Goalkeeper Jairus Adira is seemingly returning to his best and he will be happy to help his side get something against the defending champions. Like old wine, Hillary Echesa is becoming finer. If he pulls through against Tusker, his coach Abdallah Juma will be the happy one.
PROBABLE LINE-UPS: Tusker: David Okello, Marlon Tangauzi, Shafique Batambuze, Martin Kiiza, Eugene Asike, Humphrey Mieno, Hashim Sempala, Cersidy Okeyo, Noah Wafula, Jackson Macharia and Allan Wanga.
Chemelil: Adira Jairus, Ouma Willis, Omino James, Ouko Smith, Juma Yusuf, Ojwang David, Echesa Hillary, Edwin Omondi, Maurice Wandera, Oscar Oketch and Japhary Owiti
