Dan Sikuta upbeat as Kabras Sugar eye Oilers scalp
RUGBY By Washington Onyango | July 24th 2021
Kabras Sugar will be seeking to extend their unbeaten run in the Kenya Cup League to six matches when they host Menengai Oilers today at Nandi Bears Grounds.
Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology (MMUST RFC) will play Kenya Harlequin in an early kick off match (12pm) at the same grounds.
With Western and Nyanza region counties barred from hosting sporting activities as one of Covid-19 containment measures, the Kakamega-based clubs moved their home matches to Nandi Bears Club in Nandi County.
And ahead of the Oilers fixture, Kabras captain Dan Sikuta is optimistic of helping his side bag the maximum points and keep pressure on Kenya Cup leaders and defending champions KCB.
Sikuta said they are looking forward to registering their sixth consecutive win of the season at the new home ground.
“We have been playing well since the season started and despite the stoppages occasioned by Covid-19, the boys have continued to adapt and improve. It is this determination and drive that will propel us to victory,” Sikuta told The Standard Sports.
“Our main objective is to keep winning matches and hopefully host the final at home back in Kakamega for the second season running.”
The millers are currently second on the log with 25 points, three behind leaders KCB but with a game in hand.
KCB will take on eighth placed Mwamba RFC at the KCB Sports Club. Mwamba will be returning to action after resting last weekend.
