Nakumatt have have admitted that they must win remaining two matches to be assured of safety in the top flight.
The Shoppers under coach Melis Medo, have two matches against Sofapaka and Vihiga United to play before the end of the season and their quest to evade the big chop will start on Saturday against Batoto ba Mungu at Narok Stadium.
Nakumatt secretary Albert Wesonga has admitted that despite Thika United and Wazito already being relegated, they are not off the hook yet and must strive to get maximum points from the two matches.
“Most people are talking about Wazito and Thika United being demoted oblivious of the fact that Nakumatt is also one of the teams battling to remain afloat. We absolutely have no choice but win our remaining fixtures to be assured of playing in big-time local football again.”
Funny enough, Nakumatt is the team which has produced the highest winning margin in the 2018 season in their 6-1 annihilation of Kakamega Homeboyz at Camp Toyoyo ground in Jericho on June 17.
On the flip side, Nakumatt is also the team which has conceded the highest number of goals at 57 thus far.
