Homeboyz(3rd) host KCB (2nd) in the final match of the Kenya Cup 2019/20 regular season, with the hope of finishing second. A hard task!
KCB are second on 69 points and 360 points difference with Homeboyz following on 64 points with 292 points difference.
Homeboyz would have to cover that difference to unsit KCB. The Deejayz are likely to finish third and meet whoever finishes sixth, Menengai Oilers as it stands. The winner of Homeboyz/Oilers will travel to KCB for Kenya Cup semis.
Three points was the difference when the two sides met back in November 2019. KCB won 27-23.
