The tie pitting in-form Wazito FC and Palos FC promises to be the clash of the National Super League (NSL) third round as top meets second on Sunday.

Wazito FC have won both of their opening two fixtures including a brilliant 3-1 away victory over Nairobi City Stars who were demoted to the second-tier last season.

Their opponents, Palos have enjoyed a similarly positive start to their 2017 campaign, winning one and drawing the other and will travel to Wazito aiming to break their winning streak at their own backyard.

Palos Head Coach Paul Ogai told Citizen Digital the squad travels from the Kisumu base to Nairobi two days ahead of the fixture because of its ‘magnitude’.

“The team is prepared for the challenge and our early departure only shows how seriously we’re taking this game. The team is keen to maintain their unbeaten streak and also give a response after dropping two points last week,” Ogai said.

He decried his side’s wastefulness in front of goal as they were held to a 2-2 draw in a pulsating clash against Modern Coast Rangers.

“We want to win the game and we promise Nairobi football fans a good, entertaining game. I urge our fans to show up in large numbers to cheer the team,” he added.

Kibera Black Stars face Police FC while Coast Rangers entertain MOSCA FC in round’s earlier fixtures on Friday afternoon while Isibania battle former Kenyan Premier League (KPL) side Ushuru FC in Saturday’s only game.

Elsewhere, newcomers Eldoret-based GFEO5 will be out in search for a second straight win against City stars.

Bottom-table side FC Talanta fellow strugglers AgroChemicals with both clubs yet to record a single point this season.
