The day of reckoning has dawned, ushering in a high-stakes battle for survival in the top flight as relegation-threatened teams brace themselves for a nerve-wracking showdown on “Survival Sunday.”

Battle for relegation survival

Champion Gor Mahia has already secured a historic 21st title, making the spotlight shift to the relegation zone where the intense fight for survival is reaching its peak. With Nzoia Sugar already relegated, the pressure is now on Shabana, Sofapaka, and Muhoroni Youth to avoid the dreaded drop to the lower division.

A do or die encounter for Shabana

As the penultimate chapter of this thrilling season unfolds, Shabana finds themselves in a precarious yet hopeful position. Two consecutive victories against formidable opponents, AFC Leopards and Bidco United, have breathed new life into their survival bid. With momentum on their side, Shabana holds their destiny firmly in their hands as they gear up to face Muranga’s Seal in the final fixture at SportPesa Arena.

Currently positioned 15th on the table with 35 points, Shabana knows that a triumph against Murang’a will propel them to 38 points, ensuring their top-flight status for the upcoming season. However, their closest rivals, Sofapaka, are not out of the woods yet. A victory against Nzoia Sugar could see them reach 36 points, making the relegation battle all the more intense.

No time for error, every goal counts

In a nail-biting scenario where every goal and every move counts, the relegation battle is set to come down to the wire. Should Shabana stumble and Sofapaka emerge victorious, the tables will turn, with Batoto ba Mungu climbing above Tore Bobe to safety. A draw for Shabana and a win for Sofapaka would see the two teams deadlocked at 36 points, with goal difference being the determining factor in the final bid for survival.

It’s time for opponents to come to rescue or die alone

Meanwhile, Muhoroni Youth, fueled by a resounding 6-0 victory over Nzoia Sugar, are refusing to go down without a fight. With their hopes pinned on a crucial win against Posta Rangers at the Muhoroni Stadium, they are banking on Sofapaka’s potential slip-up against Nzoia to keep their survival dreams alive.
