Kenya Harlequin FC (1st) v Kenya Commercial Bank (2nd)
RFUEA Grounds

The past two Kenya Cup fixtures between these two sides, spread over two seasons have been full of intrigue and heartbreak, more so for KCB who let slip a 21-3 half time, capitulating 26-21 to Quins in the 2010 final. When these two sides met again in the 2010/2011 first leg fixture, A Leonard Mugaisi howler while KCB were 24-23 ahead handed Allan Omuka the easiest of tries right at the death, handing Quins a 30-24 result.

When these two sides meet on Saturday at the RFUEA, they will be playing for pride. Quins won the title with two games to spare, largely in part to their unbeaten streak that has seen them win thirteen out of thirteen fixtures. Edward Kinyany’s men will definitely want to end the season on a high, ending the season unbeaten will surely give them enough motivation.

KCB on the other hand had a rather slow start to the campaign, losing their opening fixture to Mwamba in addition to close losses at the hands of Impala and Quins. They would end the first leg in fourth position but have been in equally imperious form during the second leg, registering bonus point victories in all six of their return fixtures. They were clearly gutted after capitulating during the 2010 final and again during the first leg loss to Quins during the 2010/2011 season and will be driven towards registering a morale boosting win that would see them end the season on a high and return to camp, ready to mount a serious challenge for the forthcoming knock out Enterprise Cup.he season on a high, ending the season unbeaten will surely give them enough motivation.
