Police seek to redeem themselves as they confront Greensharks


Former champions Kenya Police will be hoping to redeem themselves when they line up against Greensharks tomorrow in the ongoing Kenya Hockey Union (KHU) men’s Premier League at the City Park Stadium.

The law enforcers have of late become a pale shadow of themselves having recorded only one win from three matches and cross swords with a side that boast of three wins and one loss.

While Police will be out to win their second match and scale up the table standing, their opponents will be seeking to win the match and go joint top of the table with champions Butali Sugar Warriors if they win their match against United States International University  (USIU ‘A’).

Greensharks coach Ben Owaga said it will be a tough match but remained optimistic of a good show.  He said: “Police are a difficult side to face because they are strong and experienced.

However, we will give the match our best shot and hopefully, we will get the three points. The boys are well-prepared and I am looking forward to an entertaining match.”

Greensharks will do without the services of defender Daniel Bunyasi who is nursing an injury while Eugene Ochieng is suspended. Today, Butali have a chance to guard their unbeaten run when they face off with  USIU ‘A’.

Butali top the standing with nine points from three matches. Butali coach Dennis Owoka  said: “USIU has always been a difficult side but we remain hopeful ahead of the tie.”

In the women category, USIU take on Sailors today before confronting JKUAT tomorrow. In the men’s Super League, leaders Parkroad Badgers host Technical University of Kenya (TUK) as Mombasa Sports Club play Kenya College of Accounts University (KCAU).
