Wazito FC will be seeking to get into the top four when they face Bidco United at Thika Stadium in one of the three mid-week FKF Premier League matches to be played on Tuesday (today).

The moneybags are currently unbeaten in their last three matches and a win against the newbies will see them move to fourth in the standings.

Currently seventh in the log with 41 points, Wazito will be eying to complete a double over Bidco United who they defeated 2-1 during the first leg played in January.

Bidco are 11th with 38 points and a win will see them go level on points with Wazito.

At the same grounds, Posta Rangers will be eying to build on their impressive 2-0 win over title hopeful KCB when they host relegation threatened Vihiga United.

The mail men shocked KCB in their last match, a result that saw them move 11 points above the relegation zone.

Vihiga United on the other side lost 2-1 at the hands of Ulinzi Stars. They will be seeking to bounce back to winning ways and revive their hopes of survival.

Meanwhile, AFC Leopards match against Nairobi city Stars is in doubt after chairman Dan Shikanda said they are yet to decide whether they will honor the match.

This is after Leopards alongside Gor Mahia were docked three points and fined a joint Sh10million for boycotting the ‘Mashemeji' Derby over the weekend.

Leopards have a league tie against league returnees Nairobi City Stars at Ruaraka grounds.

Shikanda said that the club’s National Governing Council will decide the way forward and decide whether they will be honouring the remaining league matches.

Ingwe chairman Shikanda and his Gor Mahia counterpart Ambrose Rachier were on Sunday suspended by FKF boss Nick Mwendwa.
