The race for Kenya Cup playoff slots intensifies as Menengai Oilers, holding the third spot, face off against fourth-placed Quins at the RFUEA grounds this weekend. Both teams are vying for a crucial win that would secure third place and a home quarterfinal in the upcoming six-team playoffs.

Menengai Oilers, led by coach Gibson Weru, are still undefeated, alongside leaders Kabras and second-placed KCB. Weru acknowledges the challenge posed by Quins, stating, “It will be a tough match. Quins have improved in the past year. The match will be won upfront. Whoever dominates the setpiece will carry the day. It will be an eye-opener for us.”

The Nakuru-based Oilers are on 29 points, and the outcome of this match will significantly impact their playoff standing. Quins, coming off a 9-3 loss to Blak Blad, look to bounce back with the return of key players Cornelius Mukoro, Evin Asena, and Richtel Wangila.

The Kenya Cup weekend also features other exciting matchups, with Kabras facing Nakuru, KCB hosting Blak Blad, Strathmore Leos taking on Nondies, Mwamba against Catholic Monks, and Homeboyz looking for their first win against Kisumu.
