There will be little or no rest for most BetKing Premier League teams after round 22 as they prepare for midweek matches. Kakamega Homeboyz is one of those teams and having shifted their home matches to the Nakuru ASK Showground, they will be on the road a lot.
Homeboyz, after holding Kenya Commercial Bank to a barren draw on Saturday, made way back to Kakamega and are already in preparation for their Wednesday trip to Thika where they play Bidco United. They will then head back to Nakuru for a Saturday home match against Ulinzi Stars.
While taking in the draw against KCB, Homeboyz want more from their next two.
”It was a new home ground for us and we gave a good display. Had our chances and we could have won it especially in the final stages,” says coach Nicholas Muyoti.
Assisted by Bernard Mwalala, Muyoti brought in two of his guns from the Kenya U23 team to help with the Saturday assignment and it was David Okoth, one from the duo, who came close twice in the final ten minutes of the game only to be stopped by KCB and Harambee Stars keeper Joseph Okoth. Muyoti was impressed.
”Having not trained with the team for the entire week, the duo from the national team gave a good account of themselves. David did well upfront and Sylvester Owino gave his usual top notch defending at the back. They were very key for us,” he adds.
The duo traveled back to Nairobi to resume training with the national team and might be available for the side on their way to Thika this Saturday. In they absence though, Stephen Etyang and Brian Eshihanda have been kept on standby.
Homeboyz lie 9th on the BetKing Premier League table standings and have looked impressive through the mid stages of the campaign.
