Resurgent Bandari FC aim to continue with their good run of form when they face Chemelil Sugar away at Chemelil Complex in today's (Friday) Kenya Premier League match.

Buoyed by the return of striker Dan Sserunkuma who has so far notched three league goals, a win will see the Dockers pip Gor Mahia to top spot.

After serving his suspension, veteran Bandari goalkeeper Wilson Obungu will be available for selection. 

However, Darius Msagha who has been a revelation to Bandari this season will not be available having suffered an injury during Kenya's friendly match with Malawi on Tuesday.

Ahead of the match, Bandari FC coach Paul Nkata is optimistic that his team can pull a rare victory at the Chemelil Complex which historically is a tricky hunting ground considering the sugar millers' superb home form.

"Mentality of our players are strong at the moment and prospects of going top of the table is also a motivator,” said the Ugandan tactician.

Nkata is also optimistic that his back-line that has only shipped in two league goals in five matches will contain the threat that will be posed by Chemelil strikers.
