A stellar performance in the FKF Premier League with 10 clean sheets has put Gor Mahia's custodian at the top of the Golden Glove race.

Gor Mahia's goalkeeper Kevin Omondi is having an outstanding season in the FKF Premier League, leading the Golden Glove race.

Signed from Sofapaka before the campaign commenced, Omondi has been nothing short of a defensive stalwart for the reigning champions.

As the league takes a well-deserved Christmas break, Omondi's remarkable performance is the talk of the town.

The shot-stopper has conceded a mere six goals throughout the season, showcasing an impressive ten clean sheets.

What sets him apart is a record-breaking streak of seven consecutive clean sheets, a feat that underlines his consistent brilliance between the goalposts.

Omondi's stellar performance has undoubtedly been a crucial factor in Gor Mahia's dominance, ensuring they finish the year atop the standings with a comfortable five-point lead.

Brian Bwire of Tusker closely trails Omondi in the race for clean sheets, boasting eight shut outs.

John Njau of Posta Rangers, John Otieno of Bidco United, and Joseph Ochuka of Bandari are also in the race, each having achieved seven clean sheets.

Other notable goalkeepers with six clean sheets include Bonface Munyasa of Murang'a Seal and Patrick Matasi of Kenya Police, while FC Talanta's Isaiah Wakasala has secured five clean sheets of his own.

Last season, Gad Mathews played a pivotal role for Gor Mahia but was sidelined due to injury.

This season, Omondi has seamlessly filled the void, becoming a linchpin in Gor Mahia's resolute defense.

As the Premier League takes a brief hiatus for the festive season, Gor Mahia finds themselves in a commanding position.

The solitary goal that edged out Bandari FC in Machakos in their final match of 2023 last Friday solidified their five-point lead.

With just one game remaining in the first leg, K'Ogalo have recorded nine wins and six draws, showcasing their determination to retain their title.
