Gor Mahia will be wrapping up the FKF Premier League round 20 games with a top of the table clash against KCB FC on Friday.
While these sides have had contrasting outings in their previous meetings, KCB will be keen on narrowing the gap between them and the Johnny McKinstry side to two points when they meet at Nyayo Stadium at 3 pm.

But while much has been said about their positions, what stats matter between the two sides ahead of the meet-up?
TORMENTOR: KCB’s last home win against Gor Mahia came in January 2019 (27/1). Surprisingly, the match winner that day (Kennedy Owino) is still at the club and is their top scorer with 7 goals. The only surviving members of Gor Mahia who started that game at Kenyatta Stadium, Machakos are Ernest Wendo and Philemon Otieno.
ENTERTAINMENT: There has only been one goalless draw between the two sides in their last ten meetings.
