Bernard Mwalala’s side will be in action this weekend when Bandari face Kenya Commercial Bank in the Kenyan Premier League.
The Saturday afternoon encounter will take place at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos, with the Bankers playing as the home side.
Bandari ensured their season began with back-to-back wins when they overcame an indefatigable Sofapaka side at the Machakos Stadium last weekend. The Dockers however had to fight back from a goal behind to win 2-1 in the highly entertaining encounter, having trailed the match as early as the first minute after Kepha Aswani gave Batoto Ba Mungu the early lead.
The emphatic comeback by the coastal side was however mounted during the final twenty minutes of the game, with Yema Mwana and Wycliffe Ochomo finding the back of the net.
Even though the better side evidently carried the day, Sofapaka head coach Melis Medo couldn’t hide his disappointment at the outcome, as the American tactician bemoaned his side’s poor finishing in front of goal.
Batoto Ba Mungu dropped to eight following the defeat while Bandari are third on the log with six points, nevertheless behind Kakamega Homeboyz and Mathare United due to their inferior goal difference—but ahead of Western Stima in fourth due to a superior goal difference.
KCB on the other hand fell to their second defeat of the campaign, as they were clobbered 3-1 by Ulinzi Stars last weekend at the Afraha Stadium in Nakuru. The Soldiers went into the break a goal ahead thanks to a successfully converted penalty by Elijah Mwanzia, only to give away their advantage soon after the restart through Clifton Kisiavuki’s equalizing goal.
The defense forces side however ran way with maximum points after clinical finishes by Ezekiel Okare and Timothy Odhiambo late in the second half guided them to victory.
KCB vs. Bandari betting prediction
KCB have struggled to grind out results despite signing 15 players ahead of the current KPL campaign. The poor run can however be attributed to the fact that the Bankers haven’t had any top flight football in three years, seeing as they were relegated in 2015 after finished second from bottom.
The Bankers are currently second from bottom, and will quite predictably be on the receiving end of a beating by the Dockers.
