Kenya: Homeboyz Set Focus On Top Tier After Win

Newly promoted Kenya Premier League side Homoeboyz made sure they will finish on top of Nationwide Zone 'B; with a 2-1 win over Kakamega rivals Rush FC.

Deadly striker Dennis Mukaisi opened the scoring for Fred Serenge's charges with an 18th minute penalty before Ronald Omino made sure of victory with a strike 10 minutes from time after Rush had equalised in the 70th minute

After the victory Serenge shifted his focus to next season when they make a maiden appearance in the top flight league

"I know being our first year, it will be tough for us to play in the KPL. But I have been there and I know what to expect particularly in the early stages," said the former Western Stima coach.

Serenge revealed that his Homeboyz side will make new additions into the squad ahead of the 2013 season.

"We need to make six or seven new signing that will improve our squad while also ensuring we keep the players who did a good job in our promotion," he said.

Serenge also heaped praise on the improved levels of competition in the KPL that saw three teams go into the final day with a realistic chance of winning the title with defending champions Tusker upstaging Gor Mahia to retain their crown.

"The fact that the league was decided on the final day shows a lot of quality in it and we hope it will continue that way," he said.
