NSL: Migori Youth seek redemption against FC Talanta
FOOTBALL By Washington Onyango | June 11th 2021
Migori Youth captain Clifford Otieno is optimistic his side will return to winning ways when they host National Super League (NSL) league leaders FC Talanta on Friday (today) at Migori Stadium.
Speaking to the Standard Sports, Otieno said they have been preparing for the league leaders all week and have worked out their problems and mistakes that saw them lose their round 21 match played last weekend in Nairobi.
Migori lost 2-1 to relegation-threatened Mount Kenya United at Camp Toyoyo, a result that left them 14th in the log with 25 points, 15 points behind leaders Talanta.
“We are ready for Talanta. We know it won’t be an easy ride to win against an informed team in Talanta but we will be playing at home in Migori and they should expect a tough match,” Otieno said.
In Nairobi, Kisumu Hot Stars will also be hoping to turn around their poor form when they travel to play Kibera Black Stars at Ligi Ndogo Grounds.
Hot Stars winless run stretched to four matches after losing 1-0 to visiting Gusii FC over the weekend in Kisumu.
In Kakamega, fourth-placed Vihiga Bullets will welcome Fortune Sacco at Bukhungu Stadium with an eye set on narrowing the gap between them and leaders Talanta as MCF entertain former Premier League side Mt Kenya United.
On Saturday, Gusii will host Mwatate United, Kenya Police welcome Shabana and Kisumu All-Stars play host to Modern Coast Rangers in Kisumu.
Other matches will feature APS Bomet play Soy United, Silibwet host Nairobi Stima and Muranga Seals entertain Coast Stima.
