for KCB to en­sure they re­mained on course for the top flight league.

He opened the scor­ing barely seven min­utes into the match af­ter fir­ing home a su­perb shot from out­side the box.

He was on tar­get again in the 40th minute when to wrap up the scores for the vic­tors. Shabana are trail­ing the ta­ble in the sec­ond tier with only 13 points.

Team manager Andrew Kan­uli at­trib­uted their poor show in the Su­per League to lack of mo­ti­va­tion and ac­cused the team man­age­ment of ne­glect­ing the club. He claimed his key play­ers were no longer se­ri­ous af­ter they were al­legedly aban­doned by club man­age­ment.

“We are call­ing on the County Gov­ern­ment of Nyamira and Kisii and other well-wish­ers to come to the res­cue of the club if the gane of foot­ball is to grow in the re­gion.

“We are cur­rently in se­ri­ous fi- nan­cial prob­lems and my boys are about to hang their boots if no sup­port comes forth,” Kan­uli added.

KCB’s coach Leonard Saleh on his part said the game was tough even though they regis­tered the vic­tory.

He con­grat­u­lated his boys for a job well done, adding that the result had in­creased their chances of be­ing pro­moted to the 2017 Kenya Premier League.

“We are de­ter­mined to get max­i­mum points in the re­main­ing four matches so that we can land a place in next year’s top tier. I am op­ti­mistic we will get there,” he said.

Mean­while, the botched match pit­ting Po­gon Siedlce against Stal Mi­elec in Poland’s First Di­vi­sion ended as a draw af­ter Mcheza held a pub­lic draw to de­ter­mine the out­come and the next jackpot win­ner.

The Pol­ish Di­vi­sion 1 fix­ture was can­celled due to heavy rains that wa­ter­logged Po­gon Siedlce’s pitch.
