The golden glove standings after matchweek 31 of the FKFPL

As curtains of the ongoing 2022-2023 FKF Premier League season come closer to being drawn, the Golden Glove race is just as tight as the title run in.

First, the race for the title has the potential to brew up between Gor Mahia, Tusker and Nzoia Sugar. Second, Elvis Rupia of Kenya Police is quickly closing the gap on Benson Omala’s 25 goals for the season after it had looked as if he was running away with it at some point.

Third, the race for the Golden Glove is tighter than ever before, with five goalkeepers standing a realistic chance of claiming the coveted prize at the end of the season with three games of the league season left to play.

After AFC Leopards' Levis Opiyo had led the race for several weeks, he was surpassed by Humphrey Katasi and Gad Mathews who are currently tied on the most clean sheets kept. However, things could still change in the remaining three games.

Brain Bwire has had an outstanding second half of the season after the departure of Patrick Matasi to Kenya Police FC, keeping 12 clean sheets in 13 games.
