THE relegation-threatened Knight Riders have four games to save their season; but like a toothless chap staring at a luscious plate of steak, theirs is not a question of opportunities.

Rather, it is one of the ability to bite into the supply and this is what the Riders don’t possess - or haven’t been seen to possess thus far.

Today, they face the Kyambogo Warriors at YMCA and if the Riders ever had a chance to show their mettle, this is it. The Riders are not only facing a playoffs-bound team, they face one that has lost once all-season, one on course to win the regular season.

So a Riders win would be proof of their belated surge in strength and it could prove the spark that ignites their survival cause. The standings suggest there is no such chance.

Collin Mukiza’s men, who are last with 16 points, trail the second-placed Warriors by 11 points – a fact that guarantees Kyambogo victory. The only pre-match factor in the Riders’ favour is the level of motivation but even that may not be enough to tilt the contest in their favour.

The Warriors are already in the postseason but Gad Etau’s men are determined to win the regular season, which would guarantee them facing the weakest team in the playoffs semifinals. Pity the Riders. They might be powerless to hurt the Warriors.
