Vihiga United are close to sealing their place in the Kenyan Premier League beyond this season following back to back wins against Posta Rangers and Gor Mahia respectively.

The team was in the danger of dropping back to the National Super League before pulling a perfect sprint that ensured they collect six points that have taken them to safety as it stands.

Coach Mike Mururi has explained what made the team perform better in the two games. “We were in the danger zone and what was needed was maximum points, there was no room for mistakes.

“The vital thing was sticking to the game plan, and take our chances. I am also happy with the output by the players, it was encouraging to see how they fought to ensure we get the points.

“Next season we will try harder to avoid the same scenario by winning as many matches as possible early enough. We have learnt the lessons and must be careful next season,” Mururi told Goal.

Vihiga is currently placed in the 13th position with thirty-seven points with two games to go.
