KCB Football Club will be looking to extend its unbeaten streak in the FKF Premier League since the beginning of the year when the team will lock horns with AFC Leopards at the Main Kasarani Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

The banker's recent 3-0 win over Vihiga Bullets away in Kakamega saw them move to second place in the log, garnering 33 points having played 16 matches. Gor Mahia are currently topping the league with 34 points.

Since the start of 2023, KCB has won seven out of ten matches played while drawing thrice. The Zedekiah Otieno's men have been on a scintillating form, the best they have been since the 2020/21 premier league season when they finished the season second.

"I am so happy with the boys who have always put their best foot forward in the current season. I can say that our pre-season was good. It was crucial for us to get it right from the word go," said KCB head coach Zedekiah Otieno.

"I can also attribute our winning streak to our philosophy and game plan for each opponent. It is my hope that we will register a positive side against a strong AFC Leopards side."

AFC leopards on the other hand shared spoils with Kariobangi Sharks in their last match. Ingwe currently sits sixth on the table with 26 points and this match will be crucial for them as well as they hope to move up the ladder.

KCB FC Captain Michael Mutinda has urged his teammates to entertain the fans and to keep their momentum going, hopefully win their maiden Kenya Premier League title at the end of the season.

"Itt is not yet over. The season has just begun for us and I trust that if we keep doing what we have been doing since the beginning of the year we can achieve even more," said Mutinda.
