By the end of the day, the two teams set for relegation from the KHU Men’s Premier League will have definitely been established.
Phenomenal clashes are bound to occur today as the three teams in the relegation zone clutch at their last straws. Strathmore Gladiators face off against the Nairobi Sikh Union at 4 pm. The loser is certain to slip into the murky waters of the Super League. Later, Parklands encounter Butali Warriors in their last attempt to salvage an already sinking ship. Considering their poor performance in the last two matches and the unbeaten streak of their opponent today, it is unlikely PSC survives. At 7 pm tonight, the fates of these three teams will be clear.
Other fixtures are present today, including the Mombasa Sports Club hosting Multimedia University. A victory for the former increases their chances of entering the Premier League. In a highly inconsequential match, Dime Sailors travel to face Western Jaguars in a mid-table clash in Kakamega.
The women’s premier league will see Blazers face off against USIU-A, with the latter determined to persist in the pursuit of second place. After a dismal performance against Kenyatta University last weekend, it will be interesting to see how the league giants perform today. Particularly, being the only team from Kenya attending the African Club Championships, their caliber currently reflects the quality of the game in the country.
Nevertheless, our focus is on the teams facing relegation. Who will survive? Who dies today? Who is hoping the rains persist all day to survive a day longer among society’s creme? Only time will tell. Have a lovely day ahead.
