Bandari's fine run in the league will be put under stun test at Awendo when they face Sony Sugar, who are in a fine run

Four Kenyan Premier League matches will be played at different venues this weekend.

At Sudi Stadium, Nzoia Sugar will take on Vihiga United in a Western Derby, with both sides aiming at getting a win. The Nicholas Muyoti led side has not been consistent in the league, and will be keen to get maximum points.

The hosts have collected a single point from their last three matches as compared to the visitors, who have collected seven points in as many matches. A win for Nzoia will take their tally of points to thirty-four, while a win for the visitors will see them reach thirty-three.

Mathare United will host Kakamega Homeboyz at Kenyatta Stadium hoping to bounce back from last time's one all draw away to Zoo Kericho. The ‘slum boys’ have found the going tough this season, struggling to get results same with their visitors, who have found it tough since the departure of coach Mike Mururi.

In the first leg, the two teams played out to a barren draw despite the Western-based side coming into the match as favourites. Bandari's fine run will be put under stun test at Awendo when they face Sony Sugar, who have been excellent of late.

The Dockers have made it five wins in a row as compared to their hosts, who have won five of their last six outings. A win for the Bernard Mwalala led side might cement their second position on the 18-team table.

The Coastal-based side won the first leg by a solitary goal. On Sunday, Chemelil Sugar will host Posta Rangers.
