The most important match this weekend in the KRU Championship takes place at the Seacrest School in Diani when hosts South Coast Pirates take on the Impala Saracens.

The Pirates are currently in the fourth and final playoff slot, and with it, a stab at promotion to the commotion.

With two games to go, the Pirates will be out to build an unassailable lead between them and fifth placed Impala who are playing in the second tier after their relegation from the Kenya Cup last season.

A win for the Pirates could potentially take them to 35 points, in the event of a bonus point, or 34 points without the bonus. This could see them open at the most, a 10 point gap over Impala, and at the least, a 7 point margin, in the event that Impala manage to collect double bonus points.

For Impala, they can draw level with the Pirates if they register a bonus point win and deny the Pirates a losing bonus. This would lift them to 30 points, and fourth place due to their superior points difference.

They can still keep up the pressure on the Pirates with a regular win. This would bring them to 29 points, and just a point adrift of the Pirates, in the event that the Pirates do not get the losing bonus point.

Impala have been in solid form, rising to fifth with three successive bonus point wins, the most recent being the 64-5 wipe out of Shamas on match day 9. They will need to display this same kind of form as they take on their opponents who fell to a narrow 22-17 home defeat to leaders Nondescripts last weekend.

Leaders Nondescripts will be at home to the Zetech Oaks as Shamas host Daystar Falcons with Western Bulls taking on USIU Martials.

Eldoret host Kisumu as Kabarak University duel the University of Eldoret Trojans.
