Tusker and AFC Leopards will be aiming to redeem themselves as the FKF Premier League enters round four this weekend.

Both sides have had a stuttering start to the season.

Last week saw Tusker suffer a setback as they fell 2-1 to Kakamega Homeboyz, shaking their confidence early on.

Tusker will be hosting unpredictable Muhoroni Youth at Ruaraka grounds today in a crucial encounter that could be the turning point they desperately need.

Unlike Tusker who have registered only one win in their opening three matches (one win, loss and draw), Muhoroni Youth are still winless following their three consecutive draws. 

A victory against Muhoroni Youth could put them back on the path to reclaiming the title they lost to Gor Mahia last season.

Equally, AFC Leopards will continue to search for their first victory this season when they take on Kenya Police at Kasarani Stadium today.

Having drawn twice and lost once, the pressure is mounting on the limping Ingwe. 

Despite being at the early stage of the season, their position near the relegation zone is a big concern for their title-starved fans. A win against Kenya Police could breathe life into their campaign and propel them up the league table.

The action-packed weekend in the FKF-PL also features other exciting matchups.

In the early kick-off match at 1 pm at Kasarani Annex, Bidco United will take on FC Talanta, before paving way for the second match between Nairobi City Stars and Nzoia Sugar at 3.15pm at the same venue.

In Homa Bay County, the newly promoted Shabana will be hunting for their first win of the season as they host Kariobangi Sharks at the Raila Odinga Stadium. This encounter could provide Shabana with an opportunity to make a statement on their return to the Premier League.
