KAYOLE ASUBUHI VS ZAMALEK FC (11AM)
Wounded champions Kayole Asubuhi FC who suffered their fourth loss of the season when they were defeated 0-1 by Jericho FC in their last game will be looking to rebound from the setback when they play limping newcomers Zamelek FC at Calvary grounds in Kayole.

The Isaiah Omondi led defending champs are nine points adrift of the top spot sitting 4th on 26 points will be keen to capitalise on Zamalek’s hangover of their 3-1 loss to Kawangware last week that left them placed 5th tied on 26 points with their opponents.

NYSA VS SHAURI MOYO BLUE STARS (3PM)
At Ngong Posta grounds, plucky new comers NYSA clash with Shauri Moyo Blue Stars FC hoping to pick the maximum points and finish the first leg on a high note.

The West Conference side occupy second place with 30 points, five behind leaders Kawangware and a win against Blue Stars who sit 11th with 16 points will cap an remarkable first half of their debut season in the top flight where they have made it clear they have what it takes to bid for the title.

Team Umeme in recent action against Jericho FC at Camp Toyoyo grounds. They will be at their Ziwani Sports grounds on Saturday 10 June to tackle Kabete United.

TEAM UMEME VS KABETE UNITED (3PM)
Kabete United have a chance to move up the log when they take a trip to Ziwani Sports grounds to engage struggling debutants Team Umeme who sit 12th on 16 points so far.
United who won their 7th game of the season last weekend following their 2-1 win over Ole Rongai sit 8th with 21 points. A win will see them climb two places up.

AJAX YOUTH FC VS METRO SPORTS FC (3PM)
Ajax Youth FC entertains Metro Sports FC at Nakeel grounds. Both sides were beaten in their previous fixtures with the hosts who are sitting at the bottom of the log with a mere 6 points falling 0-1 away to Blue Stars while Metro took a 5-1 drubbing by NYSA.

A win will be important to either sides as Metro who are coached by Ezekiel Akwana aim to ascend into the top 10 where they sit on 18 points while Ajax will be searching for their second win of the season.

MACMILLAN FC VS MELTAH KABIRIA FC (3PM)
Ninth-placed Meltah Kabiria FC who lashed MASA 3-1 last week will be hoping to replicate their earlier performance when they take on struggling Macmillan who are siting 14th with 9 points. Newly promoted Macillan have won just once this season and a win against Meltah who have 20 points so far will boost their morale ahead of the break.

MASA VS KIAMBIU YOUTH FC (3PM)
In another entertaining match-up, old enemies MASA and Kiambiu Youth FC will meet at Makongeni grounds.

A 3-1 whipping by Meltah last week saw MASA handed their 5th loss of a campaign they started strongly only to succumb to the pressure along the way where they are now placed 7th on 21 points. Kiambiu on the flipside are having a disastrous season having won only three games and drawn 2 to sit 13th on 11 points. A win will be important to lift them out of the danger zone.
