In what promises to be an exciting midweek showdown, Kakamega Homeboyz is gearing up to host KCB in a rescheduled FKF Premier League match at Bukhungu Stadium, kicking off at 3 pm on Wednesday.
With both teams currently tied at position 11 in the 18-team league, this encounter takes on significant importance as they look to climb the league table.
As the 2023-2023 season got underway, both Kakamega Homeboyz and KCB had a shaky start, managing to secure four points each in their opening three fixtures.
Each team has recorded one win, one loss, and one draw, highlighting their level of competitiveness and unpredictability heading into this crucial midweek clash.
The stakes are high for both sides in this match, as the victor will significantly narrow the gap on the league leaders, Posta Rangers, who sit comfortably at the summit with 10 points.
Rangers have had a stellar start to the season, winning three of their opening matches and drawing one, setting the pace for the rest of the teams in the FKF Premier League.
Furthermore, the winning team in this contest will join Tusker and Bandari in joint fourth place on the league standings, each boasting seven points from four matches played.
This match's significance cannot be overstated, as it has the potential to reshape the early-season dynamics of the league.
The rescheduling of this match stems from the season-opening weekend last month when it was postponed due to Kakamega Homeboyz's involvement in the CAF Confederation Cup.
Now, both teams are ready to face off in front of their fans and seize the opportunity to make their mark in the league.
In anticipation of this crucial fixture, KCB coach Bernard Mwalala who had previously managed Kakamega Homeboyz said he believes his team will return back to the City with maximum points.
"We are fully focused and prepared for this match against Homeboyz. It's always special for me to return to a team I previously coached, but once we step onto the field, it's all about securing the three points.
“We know Homeboyz is a strong side, but we have our own strengths and tactics that we'll be looking to capitalize on. The team is in good shape, and we're looking forward to a competitive and exciting encounter."
