After blowing two chances to stay up in the Kenyan Premier League, KCB will have no one but themselves to blame should they go down when the curtains fall on the 2015 season this Sunday.
Should they be relegated – and there’s a huge chance they will be – the Bankers will always despondently remember October 18, 2015, the day they had their best chance of survival but blew it.
A win against Nairobi City Stars in that match was all they needed, but even a draw wouldn’t have been as catastrophic as the 1-0 defeat ended up being.
Win not enough
They go into the season finale needing to beat Western Stima (something they last did in June 2013) to survive.
KCB boss, Rishadi Shedu who has spent the most of the season on crutches after sustaining a leg injury knows the task ahead needs spiritual intervention
“Yes, our chances are slim, but all is not lost. We have a chance to survive if we can win the next match’” he told KPL.
He added, “We pray that City Stars fumble. We shall utilize this opportunity to the best of our capability.”
Well, their best opportunity bypassed and the mathematics doesn’t favor them. KCB MUST beat Stima and hope that City Stars lose against Sony Sugar. Should Dennis ‘Wise’ Okoth’s side get a draw, KCB will need to beat Stima by at least two clear goals to earn themselves another season in the topflight.
