Power Men of Western Stima out to overpower Flower planters, Zoo Kericho further into relegation

Flower planters, Zoo Kericho will host power producers, Western Stima in a midweek clash that is expected to either lift the hosts from a relegation-threatened zone or ink them further down.

Both sides have had poor recording their last five matches recording only a single win.

Zoo has recorded two losses and two other draws in those five matches with Western Stima losing three and a single draw in the same number of matches.

Stima stands at position 15with 31 points two behind Nzoia and just one ahead of Posta Rangers which poses a threat if they concede a defeat once again.

Western Stima loses came in the hands of Sofapaka, Kakamega Homeboyz and Sony sugar in their recent five matches drawing once against League leaders, Gor Mahia and a win against Mount Kenya United.

On the other hand, their rivals in the midweek fixture Zoo who is hosting them has lost their two matches against the slum boys Mathare United and Nakumatt (Mount Kenya United), drawn against Sony Sugar and FC Leopardsawhile getting a win against Ulinzi stars in a match that they played recently.

The records are a clear show of two unstable sides where anything can be expected but the Power Boys who have been in the league for some time could be well positioned to get a win.

A win for Stima will take them to position 11 where the bankers, KCB stand but will be in the position with lesser goals while a loss will make no difference as they will have played an equal number of matches with Posta Rangers who sit behind them.

A win for Zoo will be a great threat to Sony Sugar who is at position 15 with 29 points meaning they will be only a point ahead of the flower makers and slowly getting out and away from the relegation zone.
