Showdown Looms At Bomani As Wananyuki, Sparki Youth Cross SwordsA major showdown looms as Wananyuki FC cross swords with Sparki Youth FC in an eagerly anticipated mid week derby at MTTI Bomani ground in Mombasa this Wednesday January 29’th, 2010. The match kicks off at 15:00 hours. The FKF National Division Two Northern Zone Pool A match was initially set for last Saturday January 25’th 2020 but rescheduled to pave way for the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) rally held in Mombasa at Mama Ngina drive. A fierce battle is expected as both teams are in contention for the league title-pride is at stake and the derby promises lots of fireworks. This is notwithstanding being the first head to head encounter between the two giants. Wananyuki are placed in the second position with 25 matches from 13 matches and five points behind leaders Young Bulls. On contrast Sparki Youth are placed in the seventh spot with 22 points from 13 matches. After losing grip on the top spot following three consecutive defeats Wananyuki will be out to restore their dented pride. The Mwembe Kuku street club is still nursing the injuries sustained in the 0-1 away loss to Young Bulls, 0-2 home loss to Changamwe and 0-2 away loss to Maji Bombers. According to club coach Twahhir Yusuf the unprecedented slump in performance has been attributed to exodus of key players including defender Paul Ndara and midfielder Eric Chivatsi who have sought greener pastures in the FKF National Super League clubs during the mid season transfer window. A win for Wananyuki will see them close the gap with Youngbulls Sparki Youth under tutelage of Abdalla Ahmed aka Ankoli are enjoying a fine run in the league having won the last two consecutive matches including 0-3 away victory over Kishada and 1-0 home win over Miritini Stars. Lethal striker David ‘’Essien’’ Mutua is in top form and if his current form is anything to go by Wananyuki could be in for trouble. Victory for Sparki Youth will see them share the second position with Wananyuki though the latter have a superior goal difference.
