Ulinzi Stars out for a second successive victory against Vihiga United

The clash comes just seven days after the Sunday’s league game

Ulinzi Stars will be aiming at completing a double against Vihiga United in under a week when they face off on Sunday.

The Soldiers beat United 2-0 in a league match on Sunday and Dunstan Nyaudo will be hoping to carry on with his away record when he takes the Vihiga-County side in an FKF Shield round of 16 clash.

Both sides will clash at the Mumias Sports Complex, the very place where the hosts dropped three crucial points last weekend.

This will be the third meeting in the history of the two sides and with Vihiga having won the first-ever meeting, at Afraha Stadium in April, Nayudo is cognizant of the granular task that awaits his troops ahead.

“It will be a tricky game for us because after winning this one they will want to stop us in the next, and honestly they are a good side; very technical and fast.

“Every game comes with its strategy and having played them here and won, they will definitely have some strategy for us as well, so we have to change our tactics,” Nyaudo told the club website.

But for a coach who has only registered three wins out of 12 games at home, a trip to Mumias Complex is a blessing in disguise.

“We also took advantage of the good playing surface. It is not easy to get such a surface in Kenya,” he added.
