Kariobangi Sharks will be seeking to end their five-match winless streak when they kick-off round 17 of the FKF Premier League with a match against Sofapaka on Friday.

Sharks who last won their last match on January 23 against Bandari (1-0) will host the 2009 Kenya Premier League champions at Kasarani Annex from 3pm with a goal of ending their poor form.

The William Muluya-coached side have lost two games against Nzoia Sugar (3-1) and Mathare United (2-1) before drawing in three match against Tusker (1-1), Bidco United (1-1) and AFC Leopards last weekend (0-0).

The poor run has seen them drop to 13th in the standings with 17 points, seven points above the relegation zone.

On the other hand, Sofapaka will be hoping to end their two-match losing streak.

Batoto ba Mungu will head into the Friday kick off behind their defeat to KCB (1-0) and Bidco United (2-0).

One point ahead of Sharks, Sofapaka are 12th in the log on 18 points.

On Saturday, six matches will be on the cards while two will be staged on Sunday.

Gor Mahia will play Kenya Police at Kasarani Stadium as the Kasarani Annex hosts a double header pitting Talnata v Nzoia Sugar and City Stars taking on Ulinzi Stars.

Other matches will see Mathare United welcome fellow strugglers Wazito at Ruaraka, Bandari host Bidco United in Mombasa and Kakamega Homeboyz face Vihiga Bullets in Kakamega Derby.

On Sunday, defending champions Tusker play Posta Rangers at Kasarani Annex as second-placed KCB face AFC Leopards at MISC Kasarani.
