The much-awaited Kenyan Premier League promotion play-off will go on after all.

This is after the Sports Dispute Tribunal threw away the case filed by Thika United, challenging the play-off criteria between them and Ushuru.

The two sides were to settle it out in a two-legged play-off on December 6 for the first round, with the return leg four days later, but Thika rushed to court protesting the move.

But on Tuesday, the local sports arbitration body threw away the case, setting the ground for a clash between Thika United and Ushuru.

Thika United finished 16th in the Kenyan Premier League while Ushuru came third in the lower National Super League.
