With just two matches to go, Tusker will be going all out for maximum points when they host Kakamega Homeboyz on Friday afternoon in a round 32 match of the Football Kenya Federation Premier League.
The brewers know that nothing less than a win will do it for them in their quest to be crowned the Kenyan champions.
Tusker have already qualified to represent Kenya in this year’s CAF Champions League tournament and winning the local title will be a major boost to their confidence.
Coming from a hard-fought win over Sofapaka , Tusker will be seeking to build on the momentum towards the home stretch with a win over Homeboyz.
Tied on 58 points with second placed KCB, the brewers remain at the top of the log only because of a four-goal difference.
As the chase for the crown intensifies, numbers will play an integral part Friday afternoon, a state that puts the brewers in a precarious position in a must-win tie.
In the reverse fixture in Kakamega, Robert Matano men emerged 1-0 winners and will be hoping to make a double over Nicholas Muyoti’s coached side.
Homeboyz will bank on Shami Kibwana’second-legal heroics to bounce back to winning ways after going winless in back-to-back fixtures while Tusker will once again hope John Macharia’s late strikes will work the magic to give them a cutting edge over Homeboyz.
