KPL Preview: Three matches lined up this weekend as KCB take on Posta Rangers

The CECAFA Senior Championships slated for this weekend have meant that only three Kenyan Premier League games will be played this weekend.

Chemelil vs Stima

Chemelil are relegation contenders with just 12 games into the season and are a walkover away from being expelled from the league. 

The Millers have the leakiest defense having let in a whopping 33 goals which is 15 more than their closest challengers, Kariobangi Sharks and have also scored just four goals.

Stima are having a wonderful season and sit seventh on the log but could have been fourth if they scored more goals with fourth to seventh locked on 18 points.

Stima are the side to have registered most draws this season (6) and one of only three teams to have only lost a single game.

Nzoia vs Homeboyz

Nzoia are on a torrid run of form having failed to win any of their last six games with their last victory coming in the 2-1 win over Sofapaka.

The Millers will have to an uphill battle to beat Homeboyz as they have only beaten them twice in the league since being promoted back in 2017.

Homeboyz are flying high in the league sitting third on the log with 20 points just five off table toppers Gor Mahia. 

Homeboyz' encounters have been high scoring affairs with eight of their 11 matches producing over 2.5 goals and are the joint highest scorers in the league alongside Gor Mahia.

KCB vs Rangers

Two former Gor Mahia players (Zedekiah Otieno and Sammy Omollo) come head to head in this encounter as coaches after having a decent season with their teams for far.

KCB and Posta have scored and let in few goals meaning that apart from Gor Mahia they are the sides to have the highest goal difference. 

Posta have the joint best defense this season but they are coming into the clash having lost 1-0 to Tusker last time out while KCB come brimming with confidence after their 5-2 win over Kariobangi Sharks.
