All eyes on Nakuru and Strathmore with a playoff spot on the cards.

Three of four teams due for the qualifier playoffs of the Kenya Cup have been confirmed and by the end of this weekend, we shall know who the fourth candidate for the playoffs will be.

Strathmore Leos are in sixth place and in a better position to seal the slot, ahead of seventh placed Top fry Nakuru, who lie in seventh, three points below the Leos.

The Leos host second placed Menengai Cream Homeboyz at Madaraka who are also on a conquest of their own. The music jockeys needs a point to secure a semifinal slot alongside defending champions KCB with Saracens looking to usurp them at the death of the tournament rounds. A win for the Leos will most certainly seal the last playoffs spot for the first time in three years regardless of what happens in the Nakuru game.

Top Fry Nakuru are away to Stanbic Mwamba, who are not up to anything, having given up on the playoffs a few rounds ago. Nakuru needs to beat Mwamba, with their calculators on the side disseminating a loss for Leos. With a superior points difference than Leos, Nakuru should hope to beat Mwamba, and a loss for Leos without a bonus point. That would propel them to at least 26 points and confirm the last playoffs spot. A win for Mwamba, however, will see the end of Nakuru.

Elsewhere, there is a huge blockbuster at KCB Sports Club as KCB host straight Semifinal hopefuls, Impala Saracens. KCB already secured their semi-final slot but Saracens are on a hunt for a semi-final slot of their own and they will hope to beat their hosts with a bonus point and rally for a Homeboyz loss against Leos for their chances to even start to matter. Nonetheless, Saracens have already secured a playoffs spot should their coupe against Homeboys yield nothing.

Kenyatta University’s Blak Blad host another playoffs team in Kabras sugar at Kenyatta University in their last game of the cup this year. Kabras are looking to recover from that 41-12 drubbing by KCB last weekend and restore confidence in their team ahead of the playoffs.

Nondescript play hosts to playoffs material in SportPesa Harlequins in a game with not so much on the wire given that the Quins are already eligible for playoffs while Nondies have nothing left to fight for in the Cup this year.

Kisii RFC and Mombasa RFC will be the other game in the Cup this week and like the game involving Quins and Nondies, there is not much play for as both Kisii and Mombasa have already been relegated.
