Record Kenya Premier League winners Gor Mahia host Kenya Police in a heated encounter at the Kasarani Stadium seeking revenge.
Police got 4 points from both their matches against Gor last season and K’Ogalo are out to make amends when they lock horns on Saturday.
The first game ended in a 1-1 draw, before Police bounced back to beat Gor 2-0, something that the high-flying side has vowed to correct this time round.
Gor are currently at the top of the KPL standings with 34 points after 15 games and have the chance to further extend that lead with a win here.
Police on the other hand are in fourth place with 28 points after stringing together a six-game unbeaten streak.
Gor played out to a 1-1 draw against Ulinzi Stars in their last match, while Police’s game against Talanta concluded with the same score line.
K’Ogalo are unbeaten in 11 consecutive games and boast the best defense in the league, having conceded just six goals so far.
However, they go up against the highest-scoring team in the Kenyan top flight, setting this up to be a potentially explosive encounter.
