Kakamega Homeboyz will be seeking to extend their unbeaten run in the FKF Premier League when they host Mathare United at Bukhungu Stadium in Kakamega on Wednesday.
Homeboyz are unbeaten in their six matches played so far where they have won five and drawn once and lie joint top of the standings with 16 points same as Kariobangi Sharks who have played one game more.
The Kakamega based side has defeated Nzoia Sugar, Wazito and Kenya Police (1-0), Vihiga Bullets (3-2), Posta Rangers (2-0) and drew against Bandari (1-1).

In Nairobi, Kariobangi Sharks, who are at the summit of the log in the 18-team league with 16 points, will face 15th-placed Kenya Police at Moi International Sports Centre, Kasarani from 3pm.

Sharks have been ruthless in front of goal, netting 16 goals in seven matches and conceding four.
On the other hand, Police are yet to hit the ground running on their return to the top flight league.
