Hockey bigwigs Butali Sugar Warriors and Kenya Police are expected to set the Kenya Hockey Union men’s Premier League title chase pulse-racing tomorrow.

They lie a distant 10th on the standings with five points from five outings while USIU-A trail in 11th spot with four from three encounters.

Chase Sailors square it out with Western Jaguars as Kenya College of Accountancy University entertain newcomers Technical University of Kenya today.

In women's event, 2016 runners-up Strathmore University Scorpions will duck it out with Sliders. A win for Scorpions, who lie third on the log with ten points, will move them to second spot and the win also sees them close the gap between them and champions Telkom Orange to five points.

Vikings face Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology while Mombasa Sports Club ladies take on USIU-A Spartans in Mombasa.
