Kenya Cup’s bottom placed Top Fry Nakuru and Kenya Harlequin face off on matchday 4 as pressure mounts on both sides in what is their one of the worst starts in history.

Both Quins and Nakuru are yet to win a game and one of them is likely to go for four weeks without registering one.

Things moved from bad to worse for Quins when they bottled a 19-0 lead at halftime over promoted side Western Bulls to lose 19-21. Their first home loss was a defeat to KCB after they had lost to Ngong road rivals Homeboyz. Nakuru were hammered by KCB, a week after losing to Homeboyz at home and Menengai Oilers away.

Wanyore make only one change from the side that lost to KCB as lock Ken Mwangi comes in for Philip Owuor(bench).

Quins make several changes for a second week in a row but this time around, positional.

Lyle Asiligwa is back at fullback pushing Erick Shikuku to the open win while Dennis Otieno moves to the blind wing. Idi Kakai does not make the matchday 23.

David Ambunya moves from OC to fly-half as Eden Agero is not part of the squad. Jacon Okumba will pair Patrice Agunda at midfield.

Skipper Kevin Angote returns at no.8, Elisha Koronya ,Brian Waraba and Ayub Kimutai make up the front rwo as Mike Onsando returns at lock.
