Nairobi City Stars will be seeking to make it four wins in a row when they host Kakamega Homeboyz at Ruaraka grounds on Saturday.
The match will go on despite Kakamega county being one of the 13 counties that have been declared diseased zones. However, matches that were scheduled to be played in Kisumu and Mumias have been put off.
In the past five meetings between the two, Kakamega Homeboyz have drawn three, drawn one and lost one. ‘Simba wa Nairobi’ have been one of the most in form teams in the last few matches, having won three in a row and face a Homeboyz side who are also in good form themselves.
They have accumulated ten points in a run that has included games against Gor Mahia, Tusker and Kariobangi Sharks and their opponents will be wary of the threat of Peter Opiyo who has scored in three consecutive games.
Homeboyz were not in action in the midweek fixtures and have had a lot of time to prepare for this match. They are yet to hit the heights of last season but have been improving and a win will see them leap frog their opponents and go to sixth place.
