Plenty of fireworks is expected to light the Bukhungu Stadium for the Kakamega Homeboyz vs KCB fixture in a rescheduled match day one encounter of the FKF Premier League.

This match kicks off at 1PM West Africa Standard Time on Wednesday.

Kakamega Homeboyz, who were beaten to the title by Tusker on goal difference two seasons ago, have made an unconvincing start to the new season.

They have only garnered four points from a possible nine so far this term and will be looking for their second home win of the season. 

On the other hand, KCB had a fine run in the FKF Premier League last season but things have not been great since the win over AFC Leopards on match day two.

They are winless in their past two league games and will need to put up a strong performance in order to get something from this game.

Kakamega Homeboyz vs KCB predictions

This clash is their first meeting of the season and just the fourth league game of the season for the two teams. Kakamega won the bragging rights of this matchup last season and they will be keen to keep that run going. Here are our three predictions for the match.

Prediction 1: Kakamega Homeboyz win or draw

Truly, the head-to-head record looks tight and it is rightly expected to be a tough match on Wednesday. The Homeboyz have what it takes to edge this tie and get at least a point. They have not lost to KCB at home since 2013. 

Prediction 2: Kakamega Homeboyz to score

Kakamega took four points from this fixture last season, winning away at the Kasarani Stadium before a goalless draw at home. They have scored in three of their past five home meetings against KCB. Additionally, they have also scored in five of their past six home games.

Prediction 3: Under 2.5 Total Goals

Both teams finished in the top half of the table last season but they have made slow starts to the new season. This particular fixture is a low-scoring one and that could be the case again this Wednesday. Only two of the past six meetings have produced over 2.5 goals.

Kakamega have not made a good start to the FKF Premier League this season as they have shown inconsistency in their opening three games.

They have been able to accrue four points from a possible nine and will need to return to winning ways after last weekend's result against champions Gor Mahia.

KCB

KCB have played three games so far this campaign and they have achieved results similar to that of the home side. KCB have already won a game, lost one and drawn another this season, showing their inconsistencies in the league thus far.
