Ulinzi Stars are still holding on to a top-four finish hopes in the KPL with six rounds of matches left to the end of the season.

Gor Mahia have already claimed the first place after they successfully defended the title following a 2-0 victory over AFC Leopards on Saturday.

Ulinzi, on the other hand, will be hoping to topple Sofapaka from fourth place, starting with a home game against Nakumatt.

Coach Dunstan Nyaudo bounced back to winning ways with a 2-0 victory against hosts Chemelil Sugar on Saturday and the custodian is convinced that the Soldiers can break into the top-four with a little persistence in performance.

“We have a target to finish in the top four, and we know we can go all the way to second place, but we want to take a game at a time,” Nyaudo told Ulinzistarsfc.com after a victory.

The victory saw Ulinzi temporarily moved to fifth on the log, three points behind Sofapaka. Nyaudo believes that the much-awaited victory was as a result of the drift from the ‘normal’ formation.

“We went to the match after a long dry spell and together with my coaches and players, we discussed a change in strategy and worked towards that in training all week. I am happy that it worked, giving us two good goals and a win

“Each game comes with its own strategy; we still have six to go in the league and we will always look at our options and decide on what’s best."

The Soldiers, who have 44 points, will face a Nakumatt side that have lost only one of their last five games.
