All eyes will be on APS Bomet, Fortune Sacco and Muhoroni Youth as the National Super League (NSL) enter the final stretch with FKF Premier League promotion at stake.

Leaders APS Bomet will be hoping to stretch their lead at the top of the standings further away when they travel to face Dandora Love in Nairobi on Sunday.

The Bomet based club currently leads the log with 63 points six points ahead of second placed Fortune Sacco who face Mara Sugar tomorrow.

Second-placed Fortune Sacco, who beat Modern Coast Rangers 2-0 on Wednesday, will be aiming for all three points against Mara Sugar to consolidate their top table status.

Muhoroni Youth, who lost 1-0 to SS Assad on Wednesday to drop from second to third on the league table, face Silibwet at Muhoroni looking to bounce right back.

But they face a Silibwet side buoyed by a recent 4-2 defeat of Kisumu All Stars.

fifth-placed Shabana will be looking to register another victory against visiting Kibera Black Stars in Narok to boost their chances of promotion back to the topflight since 2006 when they went down.

A win at William Ntimama Stadium will push Shabana to fourth position on the log on 53 points, assuming MCF loses to Migori Youth in another crucial duel expected to attract a big crowd at Thika Stadium on Sunday.
