Kakamega Homeboyz are well on course for a maiden Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Premier League title, currently boasting of a ten-point lead at the summit of the standings.
With only ten games to the end of the season, Homeboyz have 52 points while defending champions Tusker are second with 42 points.
Despite the comfortable lead at the top, head coach Bernard Mwalala maintains that the team will not be carried away to start celebrating before the title is home.
According to the former Bandari FC head coach, Abana Beingo are taking a game at a time as their fan base prepares to welcome a first league title.
“Counting the difference between us and our opponents is the fans task, ours is to keep focus and win match after another because there is still a long way to go,” Mwalala said.
Last time out, Homeboyz put 2010 champions Ulinzi Stars to the sword, hitting them 4-0 at the Bukhungu Stadium in Kakamega on Saturday, just two weeks after beating the soldiers 1-0 in the away fixture.
And having kept clean sheets on both occasions, Mwalala is full of praise for his team which has only lost two games after playing 24 matches.
“Yes we displayed a good game but this is our biggest win and on top of it we did not concede a goal,” he added.
Kakamega Homeboyz have scored the highest number of goals in the league this season, 42, and their next assignment is a back-to-back duel against 2009 champions Sofapaka who are 12th on the log with 28 points.
