Muhoroni stare at NSL relegation as KCB pip Ushuru

Muhoroni Youth are staring at relegation from the second tier National Super League (NSL) just a few months after being demoted from the Kenyan Premier League last year.

This after they failed to show up for a third straight match yesterday.

Muhoroni were slated to meet Nairobi City Stars at Camp Toyoyo but failed to turn up, giving John Amboko’s side three free points and now face dire consequences as the rules state that if a team gives three walkovers, then they are relegated to the third tier Division One.

Meanwhile, KCB left it late to secure a hard-fought 1-0 win against Ushuru courtesy of Simon Abuko’s 80th minute strike. In what was a physical contest, no team was willing to cave in with numerous challenges witnessed.

In the opening exchanges, most of the football was concentrated in the middle of the pack, the battle between Zacharia Gathu for the bankers and Luis Masika for the taxmen who later was replaced following injury.

Elsewhere, Isebania’s undefeated run was ended by Western Stima in Awendo when they went down 1-0 in another titanic encounter which had numerous chances going both ways. Replacing them at the top is Kenya Police who won 3-2 against visiting Modern Coast Rangers.

Newcomers Kangemi Allstars, under Michael Nam, hit Administration Police 2-0 at Hope Centre leaving coach Benlee Juma with no victory in the division.
