The battle to stay in the Azam Rwanda Premier League takes centre stage this weekend when rock bottom Gicumbi host Sunrise while Miroplast, which is a point above Gciumbi, entertain third placed AS Kigali on Sunday.

Gicumbi coach Abdul Bizimana has warned his players that they must improve on their performance against Sunrise if the team is to avoid relegation.

“We have won few matches so far, which is not good enough and we shall need to improve significantly in the remaining games,” Bizimana said.

Miroplast unveiled new coach Suleiman Niyibizi on Wednesday who was tasked with keeping the club in the topflight division. Herve Mironko, the chairman of the club, told Times Sport that Niyibizi had signed a 3-month contract and his only main task is to avoid relegation.

“His primary target is to keep us in this division,” the tycoon, who runs a plastics factory, said.
