Mombasa’s Mbaraki Sports Ground will be a battleground as on-form Coast Stima confront their neighbours Modern Coast Rangers in ‘Coastal Derby’ in the National Super League on Saturday.

Speaking ahead of the encounter, Coast Stima head coach Paul Ogai has vowed to overcome their first leg defeat as they target promotion to the top tier league next season.

Stima who are unbeaten in the second leg will at the same time miss the service from two of their key players including Dominic Waithaka who fell ill after their last weekend trip in Muranga but Ogai is optimistic that it will not ruin their plans.

“With our current form we hope to continue where we left though we will miss our two key players who are sick,” Ogai said.

The former Western Stima coach has also called out to the coastal fans to turn out in large numbers and witness their own players as there will be no charges.

“Leave alone European leagues, come and witness your brothers as they battle out,” urged Stima Coach.

Modern defeated Stima by 3 goals to 2 in a five goal thriller first leg match at Serani Grounds in Mombasa last year.

With 11 games to go Stima are currently 5th with 40 points as Rangers are 14th with 23 points.
