Kisumu Lakeside will be seeking redemption when they host defending champions, Ulinzi Warriors in a Kenya Basketball Federation (KBF) Premier League match to be played at Manyatta Arabs Primary School in Kisumu.

Lakeside have lost all four matches against EMYBA, Thunder, Eldonets and KPA but head coach Brian Lusaga is optimistic they can grind their first win against Ulinzi Warriors.

Speaking to The Standard Sport, Lusaga said the new signings in the team are yet to stabilise, but was impressed by their performances in their last two games.

“The team is hungry for wins, we have worked on our offence which had so many turnovers. It’s a long season though and we expect to turn things around.

“We do respect every opponent, and in as much as they are the defending champions we all on the same league and we believe in ourselves,” said Lusaga.

However, Lakeside have been dealt a huge blow after losing top scorer Trevor Gari to injury.
