The two sides clash this evening, (Wednesday 12 September 2012) at the Nyayo National Stadium, kick-off 1900 hrs local time.
A win will lift Tusker to within a point of leaders AFC Leopards and Matano knows that his side can race into real contention for the title with victory over a side they have never beaten in the Kenyan top flight.
- The game today is very important for us. It is one that we really need to win.
- If we collect the three points, we will be very much in the title race, as we will close the gap on the leaders.
- That is the important thing for us, and we hope that we can do it, he said.
Matano has dropped the innefectual Kenneth Wendo from the full-matchday squad, citing good bench-power as his reason.
