The FKF National Super League will get back underway this weekend, Saturday 8 July and Sunday 8 July, with Isibania, St Joseph Youth, and Administration Police set for home ties against FC Talanta, Kenya Police and Nairobi City Stars respectively. The league had taken a six-week recess since May 31

Talanta

Ninth-placed Isibania will be up against eighth-placed Talanta, whom they trail by one point, at the Awendo Green Stadium. The NSL newcomers will be looking to carry on their good form that has seen the self-sponsored club manage a top ten finish in the first leg despite all odds

Kenya Police will also be hoping to give a good account of themselves when they travel to Nakuru to take on fellow strugglers St Joseph Youth at the Afraha Stadium. Police has won four in 15 and will be up against St Joseph Youth, ranked 18th on the log, with only seven points from 15 matches

Administration Police

On Sunday, Administration Police will play host to Nairobi City Stars at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos. The law enforcers, promoted to the NSL this season, have lost six games in a row, the latest being a 1-0 loss to Talanta in May. City Stars, meanwhile, has had a lukewarm season since demotion from the KPL, managing 19 points from 15 games to settle at 12th place on the log

Four more matches will be played in midweek next week, July 12, the highlight being a match between fifth-placed KCB and third placed Wazito, a repeat of this weekend’s GoTV Shield round of 32.  Modern Coast will also play Kibera Black Stars while Bidco United will be up against struggling MOSCA

Vihiga United

Vihiga United still tops the league with 35 points, while Nairobi Stima is second with a similar point tally but an inferior goal difference. Wazito is third with 32 points, a point more than Ushuru at fourth. MOSCA is still in the basement of the log with a paltry four points, with St Joseph Youth coming at 18th with seven points
