Kabete are struggling to get their act together in the second leg where they are placed 10th on the log with 21 points. They will have to put in extra effort in order to overcome mighty All stars who are oozing with astonishing confidence as they are commanding the league table standings with 36 points.
KAWANGWARE UNITED VS SHAURI MOYO BLUE STARS
Kawangware United will host Shauri Moyo Blue Stars at BP grounds in Dagoretti from 3pm.
