Rwanda and Tanzania will both be eyeing their first win of the 2017 CECAFA Cup Tournament when they lock horns at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos on Saturday afternoon.

Kick-off is at 13h00 CAT.

The two nations are winless at this year's tournament with Rwanda having suffered defeats to hosts Kenya and Zanzibar before playing to a goalless draw with Libya.

Amavubi have scored only one goal in three matches, something the 1999 champions will be aiming to rectify this weekend.

The Taifa Stars have accumulated the same amount of points as their Group A rivals with a 0-0 stalemate against Libya followed by a 2-1 loss to to Zanzibar.

Tanzania are three time champions of the East, Central African Tournament with their most recent success coming on home soil seven years ago.
