All focus will be on ten times champions Impala Saracens as the 2021-2022 Kenya Cup action continues with match day six matches lined up on Saturday across Nairobi, Nakuru and Kakamega.  

 After five rounds played, Impala occupy the bottom position in the Kenya Cup log with no points after losing all their opening five matches.

With the games coming in thick and fast, the focus this weekend is on the lower end of the table where former champions Impala have a handful of games to turn around their season. 

 Impala Saracens, ten time Kenya Cup champions find themselves in unfamiliar territory, occupying the 12th and last place in the country’s top tier.

They have lost all five of their outings to date, and are yet to pick up a point.

They head into Saturday’s home clash against Blak Blad only too aware that another loss further jeopardizes their chances of maintaining their 25 year stay in the Kenya Cup.

They will be out to get their season on track with a massive performance against the varsity students as they fight to avoid relegation for the first time since 1994. 

Blak Blad will on the other hand be other to pick up another win and put daylight between them and the relegation zone.

  Over at the Ngong Racecourse, seventeen time champions Nondescripts host KCB while Kenya Harlequin and Strathmore Leos will face off in the top bill at the RFUEA Ground. 

  Current leaders Menengai Oilers welcome Homeboyz to the ASK Showground in Nakuru as Masinde Muliro and Kabras Sugar face off in the Lurambi Derby in Kakamega.
