Only one point separates 12th placed Bidco United and 13th placed Posta Rangers who clash in Sunday’s BetKing Premier League (BPL)match at Ruaraka grounds on Sunday.
Rangers will come into the match brimming with confidence as they managed to upstage Tusker , who were log leaders at the time, through a Joshua Lopaga goal.
The Stanley Okumbi side will also be hoping to exact revenge after Bidco had the first laugh when the two sides met for the very first time in the first leg back in February.
Furthermore, Rangers have also only lost once in their last five games and head coach Stanley Okumbi will be looking to rally his troops to keep pushing further away from the relegation sone.
Currently, the club sits eight points adrift of the relegation zone and a chance to extend that gap and exact revenge would be the perfect motivation the mail men need going into the match.
The mailmen will however have to be wary of a hurting Bidco side who come into the match on the back of a self inflicted 1-0 loss at the hands of current log leaders KCB.
David Kalama’s rush and misjudged tackle saw the Bankers awarded a penalty that David Otanga successfully convert for the only goal of the game.
The Anthony Akhulia coached team have also picked only one win in their last five, and a fixture against Posta will seem favourable considering they have had to play Sofapaka, AFC Leopards, Bandari, KCB and Gor Mahia twice including the cup competition.
Probably one thing that will be ringing at the back of their minds is the encouragement from their first leg win. That they can do it again, and grab all three points.
The team that will win the game automatically stays in front of the other. Posta will be buoyed by the fact that a striker finally scored after such a long time, a conundrum that threatened to derail their good game.
Bidco have also been boosted by the return of striker Erick Gichimu who got seventy minutes under his belt in the match against KCB.
Whether Posta will exact revenge and jump over Bidco awaits to be seen.
