Wazito F.C(78), Kisumu All-Stars(77) and Nairobi Stima(77), who are the top three leading clubs respectively, are showing interest of clinching the title.
The league status has been maintained and nobody wants to be seen on the losing end and according to the top leaders Wazito FC, as leaders they still want a win to be able to finish the business iin their final match.
“We must win to be on the safer side. We must train hard as a club because we need all the three points so we can’t even afford a draw it will cost us,” said Fred Ambani after his match against Talanta Fc.
Wazito FC play their final match against St. Joseph youth at Camp Toyoyo in Nairobi at 2pm.
Ushuru Fc are fourth position with 73 points having won 1-0 against Kangemi All-Stars at the Ruaraka grounds on Wednesday. This means only the top three clubs now stand a chance to get promoted to the KPL next season.
George Owoko, Nairobi Stima head-coach, however believes that he still stands a chance to top the league.
“We are preparing with a lot of effort as we focus on our last game. The team we will be playing with is a must win for us, so that we get a chance” said Owoko
