Kenya Police, on the back of a 2-0 loss to KCB last weekend, will hope to bounce back to winning ways when they host to FC Talanta on Wednesday at the Karuturi Grounds as from 1 pm. Police dropped to ninth on the log after two consecutive losses. FC Talanta is 10th on the log with 31 points, a point below Police

Later on, at the same venue, Nairobi Stima will play host to Isibania. Stima managed a hard fought 3-1 win over Administration Police, despite being a man less. Stima consequently rose to second place with 50 points, four behind league leaders Vihiga United. Isibania was not in action last weekend but will be looking to build up on their 3-1 win over Administration Police in their last match

In other matches slated for Wednesday, league leaders Vihiga United will face GFE 105 at the Kipchoge Keino Stadium while MOSCA will be on the road to face Agro Chemicals at the Chemelil Sports Complex
