Homeboyz back Michael ‘Tunjams’ Wanjala believes they have the capabilities of stopping high-flying Kabras Sugar.
Homeboyz host the unbeaten Kabras Sugar on match day 8 of the 2019/20 Kenya Cup at Jamhuri Showground on Sat Dec 14 at 3pm.
“We know how good they(Kabras) are and how how they have been performing this season but we have the capabilities of taking them on,” Wanjala told Raga House.
“They are building up from the win over KCB but we can match their physicality and try win the game.”
Homeboyz’s 100% start to the season was ended by KCB 27-24 before the bankers went to lose to Kabras Sugar 3-19 on match day 6.
Last meeting between these two sides ended 39-24 to Kabras in Kakamega in February.
Homeboyz reached Kenya Cup semis in 2017 and 2018 only to lose to Kabras Sugar at home on both occasions. In 2018 they lost 13-29 while in 2019 they went down 17-22.
The Deejays have a had a better start this season than last winning six matches in Seven to sit third with 29 points, five off Kabras Sugar. A win will see the gap closed with KCB, who play Impala, likely to have a chance to go top for the first time this season.
