Thika United is schedule to face off with Ulinzi Stars in Nakuru on Sunday 28 October in one of the matches that could have an impact on the team’s top five ambitions and Nyaberi says they are prepared to take on the 2010 champions.
-We are well prepared for the weekend clash with Ulinzi Stars and despite having to face them in Nakuru I am hopeful that we will register a positive result. We are eyeing a top five finish and to achieve that we have to break down teams like Ulinzi Stars, it is possible, he told futaa.com.
Ulinzi Stars are fifth on the 16-team log with 43 points, same to Thika United who are sixth but with an inferior goal difference.
