Former Kenyan Premier League (KPL) champions Ulinzi Stars will be the first to get back to action after the international break, with a Wednesday 7 September league date with Sony Sugar at the Awendo Green Stadium.
The match is a catch up game for the Nakuru based side after being handed a short break to allow the team take part in the East Africa Military Games, in Rwanda, which the team emerged winners, representing Kenya.
Skipper James Saruni knows just how much of a tough schedule the team has ahead but he says having taken the break to participate in the military games, they knew what was waiting for them upon return.
“It is a very tough run of fixtures but we are ready for it. We knew we would face this but as a team, we know we can be able to handle it,” the skipper said as quoted on the club’s official website, ulinzistarsfc.com.
In one of their catch up matches, against Posta Rangers, the team managed a barren draw before securing a slot in the GOtv Shield quarter finals after beating Chemelil Sugar in the third round of the tournament.
