We take on CUSCO from Uasin GIshu in a round of 32 Football Kenya Federation Cup tomorrow (Thursday) at Ruaraka grounds as from 3pm.
We advanced to the round of 32 after eliminating Mombasa’s Congo Boys 3-0 We will be aiming to win the trophy for the first time since 2012 when we beat Sofapaka to win the trophy back to back, having beaten the same Sofapaka team in 2011.
Lady luck has not been kind to us in this tournament recently, with the boys being knocked out on penalties in four of the last six tournaments – including three consecutive penalty shootout losses in 2017, 2018 & 2019 while last season’s tournament was cut short due to the Covid-19 pandemic
We go into this match with a run of form, having won all our last six matches but with the current fixture pile-up, it will be no surprise to see some of the fringe players get a run-out in this fixture.
The winner of this tie will play Mara Sugar who eliminated NYSA yesterday. The winner of the tournament earns a ticket to represent the country in the CAF Confederations Cup.
