AFC Leopards is fifth with 12 points, while Bandari, under the leadership of new coach Casa Mbungo, is sixth with 12 points. This is the case after they beat Kakamega Homeboyz 4-3 on the Mbarak Grounds.
The transfer window will help clubs bolster their squad with sharks among the injured after confirming on Monday that they will be without up to three players in their next FKF Premier League game against AFC Leopards.
