Following a 4-0 humiliation against Zamalek in the CAF Confederation Cup match in Egypt, Kenya Premier League champions Gor Mahia will on Wednesday return to KPL in search of points as they seek to defend their title.
Gor will be hosting Kakamega Homeboyz at machakos while AFC leopards who shocked Tusker over the weekend with a 2-1 win at will play Sofapaka at Bukhungu stadium.
Fifth-placed Kariobangi Sharks welcome Nzoia Sugar at the Moi International Sports Centre, Kasarani. Nzoia Sugar, who fell 2-0 to KCB in their last encounter in Machakos, have pitched camp in town ahead of their ninth meeting with Sharks.
This will be the teams’ 17th round fixtures.
“Compared to last season we’ve made improvement in the first leg,” Sharks coach William Muluya said.
“With 26 points from 23 last season, I think it’s a good move although not to a team that is chasing the title, we can do much better as we approach the final round,” offered Muluya, who has lamented the injuries to his youthful squad.
