Kakamega Homeboyz on Wednesday moved to the summit of the FKF Premier League table after coming from two goals down to force a 2-2 draw with Mathare United in the midweek match played at Bukhungu Stadium in Kakamega on Wednesday.

Heading to the game, Homeboyz were unbeaten in the league with five wins and a draw.

The Slum Boys on the other hand had lost their last three games.

Eugene Wethuli and Brian Eshihanda’s first half own goal had gifted the Slum Boys a shocking 2-0 with 10 minutes left on the clock.

However, two quick goals scored by Yema Mwana and Sunday Mutuku saw Homeboyz rally to share the spoils.
