The race for the coveted Kenyan Premier League Golden Boot is set to be rekindled as the Kenyan premier League returns after the international break.
With less than seven games left, more than ten players stand a reasonable chance to clinch the coveted Golden boot.
Prospect of a foreigner bagging it for the first time since Dan Sserunkuma last managed the feat, seems also probable.
Stephen Waruru who shot head and shoulders ahead of the pack before falling to a lull is joint top of the pack with 11 goals.
The assassin will be wary of his new challenger in Umar Kasumba who has seen a personal hot streak shoot him level with the leader.
Kasumba, along side Meddie Kagere are among the who have got the goals flowing in recently and will be hopeful to stay on the firing form after gainful rests from international week.
Kepha Aswani who is set to return to action after Nakumatt's reinstatement to the league and his individual suspension for cards accumulation, is also a potent challenger of the season.
Gor Mahia's last season lead scorer, Jacques Tuyisenge will also be keen to add his tally and hopefully follow Aswani as the second player to hit double figures in a second season running.
