KPL Preview: Tusker aiming to extend dominance on AFC Leopards as KCB and Wazito faceoff

Kenyan Premier League Round 14 is on the offing this weekend with giants Tusker and AFC Leopards locking horns while KCB face Wazito. 

Tusker vs AFC Leopards 

After a few years of sauntering in the league, Tusker looks to have regained their mojo back as they sit at the top of the league with 27 points and have won four consecutive games with the last three coming against Wazito, Kariobangi Sharks and Bandari.

Tusker are also looking to extend their impressive record against Leopards that has seen them lose just thrice in 22 games against Ingwe, a run that dates back to 2012.

Their success this season has been built on a potent attack that has seen them score 23 goals which is the joint highest in the league alongside Kakamega Homeboyz and have shown little signs of missing the league's top scorer, Timothy Otieno who is on National Team duty with Harambee Stars. 

AFC Leopards have slowed down after a blistering start to the season and now sit eighth on the log with their decline coming about due lack of finances. 

Ulinzi Stars vs Kakamega Homeboyz

Homeboyz are having a season to remember this campaign and have the joint most wins in the league, sitting second only a point behind table-toppers Tusker. 

This sort of form has led to their Chairman Cleophas Shimanyula to adopt Wazito owner Ricardo Badoer's vocal nature only that Homeboyz also do the talk on the pitch.

Ulinzi Stars have only lost one game this season and currently possess the league's longest unbeaten run which was extended to nine after their win over Chemelil.

They have the second meanest defense, having let in only six goals but their solidity has come at a cost with their attack being starved off goals.

KCB vs Wazito

If the clash was to have a name, it would be dubbed El-Cashico owing to the huge funds available to both sets of teams which is evident from the quality of buses they possess.

KCB have been punching above their weight this season following a poor campaign last season after gaining promotion from the National Super League.

Wazito lost out 4-1 to Bandari last time out with a case of new management same problems for the club who have also parted ways with the club's Sporting Director Solomon Alubala. 

It's hard to point a finger on Wazito's problems but lack of a consistent starting line up and conceding numerous goals could a reason for their poor form.

kariobangi Sharks vs Posta Rangers

Posta's wheels seem to be coming off after a decent start to the season and have now plummeted to 10th on the log with 17 points. 

Sammy Omollo's men have lost two consecutive games and have conceded more goals in the two games that they did in the entire season.

Sharks are on relegation form having failed to win a single game in the last eight matches with their last win coming back in October against league strugglers Chemelil Sugar.

Their major undoing has been shipping in goals, having soaked in 21 goals which is 11 more than they have scored this season.
