Kakamega Homeboyz will be seeking to bounce back to winning ways when they travel to play Kariobangi Sharks in the round 13 FKF Premier League match set to be staged at Kasarani Stadium on Saturday.

Second-placed Homeboyz suffered their first defeat of the season on Tuesday when they lost 1-0 to newbies FC Talanta at Bukhungu Stadium in Kakamega.

The defeat saw KCB leapfrog them at the top of the table with a superior goal difference as both are tied at 25 points.

The bankers, seeking to extend their unbeaten run to 12 matches, host Bidco United at Utalii Grounds.

KCB’s last defeat came at the hands of Gor (2-1 loss) last year on September 25.

Bandari and Talanta on the other hand will be hoping to build on their midweek victories over Sofapaka (1-0) and Homeboyz (1-0) respectively ahead of their weekend matches.

The Dockers entertain Kenya Police at Mbaraki Stadium in Mombasa as newbies Talanta face Nairobi City Stars at Kasarani Annex.

Meanwhile, Ulinzi Stars will be banking on home advantage to end their poor run when they host Sofapaka at Nakuru ASK Showground.
