Defending champions Tusker will be keen on registering their fourth straight win of the season when they travel to play Bidco United at Thika Stadium even as confusion continues to cloud the FKF Premier League after the ruling Sports Dispute Tribunal declared FKF National Executive Committee illegal.

Kenya could be headed for another stalemate in the management of football as according to FKF’s rules and regulations, the absence of the NEC means no league can take place.

However, the federation announced that league fixtures will proceed as scheduled this weekend.

Despite all that, Tusker will be eying a fourth win over Bidco whom they have defeated three times in their last four meetings.
Bidco have beaten the Brewers only once since they were promoted to the FKF-PL in the 2020-2021 season.

Victory for Robert Matano would see them extend their winning streak for the season to four, matching their best-ever start to the season in 2011.

The brewers lead the FKF-PL log on nine points from three straight wins.

“Maintaining consistency is key for us because we know Bidco are fighters who do not give up easily and they can hurt you if you underestimate them For us, we have to adapt to the tempo of the game and match their intensity,” said Matano.

On the other hand, Bidco will be out to bounce back to winning ways after the loss to Gor Mahia. They began the league with a 2-0 win over Nairobi City Stars but lost 2-1 to Gor.

Meanwhile, three other fixtures have been lined up for Sunday while another two will be played on Jamhuri Day as the league enters its fourth round. 

AFC Leopards and Sofapaka duel will be part of Jamhuri Day celebrations on Monday.
