Defending Kenyan Premier League champions Gor Mahia will be seeking to wrap up the  Kenyan Premier League title when they face relegation threatened side Vihiga United at Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos in round 32 matches tomorrow.

After humiliating their arch-rivals AFC Leopards over the weekend, K’Ogalo needs a win to clinch their third title in a row, and 18th in total.

K’Ogalo are on 69 points, eight ahead of second-placed Bandari and 12 ahead of Sofapaka in third place.

Bandari , on the other hand, will entertain Mathare United at Moi International Sports Centre, Kasarani.

Meanwhile, Bandari team manager Wilson Obungu says they’ll be out to extend their winning record to pile more pressure on champions in waiting Gor when they collide with the “Slum Boys”.

Mathare who sit sixth on the log have blown hot and cold this term and on 50 points from as many number of matches, will be aiming to have a go at the Dockers in what should be a battle of nerves at Kenya’s sporting cathedral.

“We will not look at our last games but we are ready to collect maximum points to keep more pressure on Gor Mahia,” said Obungu.

Obungu added that injuries to key players such as burly forward Wycliffe Ochomo slowed their momentum in the middle of the league as they lost a lot of points giving Gor the room to widen the lead.

Elsewhere in Machakos, Sofapaka will play host to Chemelil as Ulinzi host Kariobangi in another encounter.

AFC Leopards will be back to action on Thursday to tackle relegated Mount Kenya United as Tusker and Zoo battle it out at Ruaraka.
