FOOTBALL By Washington Onyango | August 13th 2021
Leaders FC Talanta will be seeking redemption on Saturday when they travel to play APS Bomet in a National Super League (NSL) match to be played in Bomet.
Talanta lost 3-0 to Vihiga Bullets on Wednesday and Ken Kenyatta would love to bounce back with a win.
Despite the loss, Talanta remained top with 62 points from 32 matches as the race for promotion slots intensifies.
Second-placed Fortune Sacco, who are seven points adrift of the leaders, will be at home in Kirinyaga to welcome Migori Youth at Kianyaga Stadium in a match they need to win to reduce the gap between them and FC Talanta.
In Western, sixth placed Kisumu All Stars will be having their eyes fixed on moving close to the top three teams when they visit Vihiga Bullets.
All Stars are seven points behind the promotion slots but with two games in hand.
Fourth-placed Vihiga Bullets need three wins in their remaining six matches to move closer to an automatic promotion slot.
