Unbeaten Gor Mahia ready to extend streak in Kenyan Premier League


The Kenyan Premier League’s Matchweek 18 promises to intensify the competition with a series of games this weekend that could reshape the standings.

Leading the pack, Gor Mahia, currently at the zenith with 37 points, is set to face the formidable K. Sharks at the Machakos Stadium.

Gor Mahia’s undefeated streak has been the talk of the town, and their defensive solidity is highlighted by Kevin Omondi’s league-leading 11 clean sheets. A win here could further cement their position at the top, but the Sharks, hungry for points, could prove to be a stiff challenge.

The Saturday showdown also features a clash between Kakamega Homeboyz and Bandari FC at the Bukhungu Stadium. Kakamega Homeboyz, sitting at a respectable sixth with 27 points, will be banking on their home advantage to snatch a victory.

However, Bandari FC’s recent 1-0 win over Nzoia Sugar could be a momentum booster for the coastal team.

Sunday’s fixtures have Police FC taking on the challenge of Sofapaka FC at the Thika Stadium. Police FC, currently in the eighth spot, will be looking to move up the table, but they face a Sofapaka side that is in dire need of points to escape the relegation scare, as they are sitting at 16th with 17 points.

Another Sunday spectacle sees the struggling Nzoia Sugar, who are at the bottom with just 13 points, attempt to sweeten their season with a victory against Shabana FC. Shabana FC, not far ahead, will be fighting to move clear of the relegation zone, making this match a critical battle at the foot of the table.

Moreover, AFC Leopards will be hoping to leapfrog their competition as they face Muhoroni Youth. The Leopards’ defense, bolstered by the reliable hands of goalkeeper Isaiah Wakasala, who has 5 clean sheets to his name, will be tested against a Muhoroni Youth side that’s coming off a morale-boosting win against Shabana FC.

The weekend wraps up with NRB. City Stars, who have been impressive this season and currently hold the second spot with 30 points, will be looking to tighten their grip against a resilient Posta Rangers at the Ruaraka Grounds. With Robinson Asenwa among the top assist providers, City Stars have the creativity to unlock any defense.

In the final game of the weekend, FC Talanta will aim to bounce back against Ulinzi Stars after a tough 3-0 defeat to NRB. City Stars. Talanta’s goal difference sits at -5, indicating a need for a stronger defensive performance in the upcoming matches.
