Ushuru, Vihiga United and Nairobi Stima, tied at 21 points and only separated by goal difference, will be looking to pile pressure on league leaders Wazito when match-week 12 of the FKF National Super League kicks off on Saturday 06 May 2017

First on the cards will be a match pitting Nairobi City Stars and St Joseph Youth at the Camp Toyoyo grounds at 9 am.
