Kenyan Premier League: Eyes on Homeboyz, Tusker, and Gor Mahia as action returns


As the dust settles on matchweek 24 of the FKF Premier League, fans are gearing up for another enthralling weekend of football with matchweek 25 on the horizon.

The fixtures promise to stir the pot at both ends of the table, with top-tier teams clashing and relegation-threatened sides desperate for points.

Topping the bill on Saturday is the clash between the league leaders Gor Mahia and Kakamega Homeboyz at Machakos Stadium.

Gor Mahia, sitting comfortably at the summit with 50 points, will be looking to solidify their position and edge closer to another league title. With a 19 goal difference advantage and only two losses so far, they are the team to beat.

The Homeboyz, in 7th place with 37 points, will be looking to cause an upset and revitalize their campaign for a top-five finish.

Second-placed Tusker FC and Kariobangi Sharks will lock horns at the same venue earlier that day. Tusker FC, trailing Gor Mahia by 7 points, knows that any slip-up could derail their title aspirations.

With a victory imperative to keep the pressure on, they will take on the Sharks, who are swimming in mid-table waters, keen to improve their 12th-place standing.

Another match that will be closely watched features Shabana FC against Posta Rangers at R. Odinga Stadium. Shabana, in the drop zone at 17th with 18 points, will battle for survival against Rangers who have had an impressive season, perched at 5th with 39 points.

The stakes couldn’t be higher for Shabana, as a win could boost their hopes of a great escape from relegation.

Sunday’s fixtures also pack a punch with AFC Leopards facing off against Sofapaka FC. Leopards, hovering above the relegation play-off spot in 8th place, will be looking to distance themselves from the danger zone.

On the other hand, Sofapaka is sitting in a precarious 15th place, just a point away from the relegation playoff and will be fighting tooth and claw to move up the table.

The football weekend will culminate with Police FC taking on FC Talanta. Police FC, in 4th place, will seek to maintain their stronghold on a top-four finish, while 13th-placed FC Talanta will be aiming to move up the league and away from the relegation scuffle.

The atmosphere is tense, the stakes are high, and the ball is round—anything can happen in the FKF Premier League’s matchweek 25. With every kick of the ball watched by hopeful fans, the beautiful game writes its own story, one goal at a time. T

he question is, which teams will emerge victorious and step into the limelight, and which will be left in the shadows?

Only time will tell, but one thing is certain—the Kenyan Premier League is back, and it’s back with a bang!
