Wananchi out to consolidate lead

Wananchi will head into Sunday’s game against bottom side Rockets looking to maintain their lead at the top of the National Hockey League.

The defending champions assumed the top position in the league last weekend following their 7-1 victory over Simba. That victory took them level on points [19] with Kampala Hockey Club Stallions, but their superior goal difference meant they toppled the Stallions.

It was the first time Wananchi were topping the league this season having slowly started the campaign. Victory tomorrow, which is very likely, will keep them at the top of the table regardless of what transpires between KHC and Weatherhead. The two face off this afternoon, with both looking to keep tabs at the top of the table.

Sunday’s game will be Wananchi’s second in the third round. The side, like earlier noted beat Simba in the opening game of the first round.

Rockets remain the only team in the league yet to win a game this season. The side has lost all their games. They expected to offer little resistance tomorrow when they face Wananchi who are looking to maintain their status quo.
