Mombasa, KENYA: Seven matches are on cards as SportPesa premier league resume action on Wednesday with midweek fixtures after two weeks of recess.

At KPA Mbaraki, Bandari will at 4pm play host to Ulinzi Stars in a duel that is expected to depict both team’s title credential.

Bandari sits third in the standing with 10 points, two better than Ulinzi but the soldiers are superior on paper having dominated their previous meetings.

Ulinzi has been the better side in this fixture with two wins and four draws in their last six encounters including a 1-0 piping of the Dockers in their last meeting.

However with the acquisitions of big names in the January transfer, Bandari has been tipped by bookmakers as one of the title contenders and indeed it has shown statement of intent in its opening matches.

Elsewhere, joint log toppers AFC Leopards will be up against Kakamega Homeboyz, Chemelil will lock horns with Tusker, limping Sofapaka will be away at Western Stima while Mathare United entertain Nairobi City Stars.
