Defending champions Rayon Sports play away to old rivals SC Kiyovu in the first derby of the 2013/14 Turbo King Football League on Saturday at Amahoro national stadium, kick off 3:30pm.

The Blues go into today’s match without two of their key men; skipper Fuadi Ndayisenga, who was sent off on the opening weekend against Gicumbi and central defender Faustin Usengimana who is out of the season with a broken leg.

However, coach Didier Gomes da Rosa is optimistic his side can still secure maximum points from their traditional enemies when the two sides go head to head.

The Frenchman, who is starting his first full season in charge with Rayon Sports, is focused on helping the Nyanza-based team retain the league title.

He says his boys have showed remarkable “mental strength and right attitude” and can get the job done against the Gilbert ‘Yaounde’ Kanyankole’s side in a match a fixture that used to be the biggest in the country pre 1994 before APR came onto the scene.

Since 1995, a new rivalry emerged between Rayon Sports and APR, with the later going to win a record 13 league titles compared to five for the former during that period. Kiyovu’s last of their three league titles came in 1993.
