The Lead is Rapidly Reducing But Homeboyz Maintain the Title is Theirs to Lose

Kakamega Homeboyz quest for a first Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Premier League title has continued to suffer setbacks as the 2021/22 season enters homestretch.

Homeboyz who were leading standings with 53 points, ten points ahead of closest challengers Tusker a fortnight ago, now find themselves on 55 points, just six points ahead of the defending champions.

Abana Beingo as they are fondly known, have managed a paltry three points from a maximum nine in the last three games which they all recorded draws as Tusker only drew one and won two.

Despite the impending danger that can be seen in their rear mirror, Homeboyz head coach Bernard Mwalala is confident the club will welcome its first league title come end of this season.

“I don’t think today’s outcome has affected our title bid. Yes, we have dropped points but the one point we managed in this match is equally crucial for our title charge,” Mwalala said.

Kakamega Homeboyz have seven games left to the end of the season and in that period face tough sides of Gor Mahia, Tusker and KCB.

Their game away to Tusker come son May 7 and has been touted as the title decider but Mwalala has downplayed down the talk, choosing to take a game at a time.

“This is a marathon race and we can’t rely on a single match in our bid for the title,” said the former Bandari head coach.

Apart from KCB, Tusker and Gor Mahia, AFC Leopards, FC Talatanta, Wazito and Kariobangi Sharks are the other sides that stand between Kakamega Homeboyz and their first league title.
