Batoto ba Mungu and Muhoroni Youth were facing axe from top flight after failing to comply with club licensing rules

Sofapaka coach John Baraza is delighted by Sports Disputes Tribunal ruling that favored his side.

Batoto ba Mungu and Muhoroni Youth had been relegated by Football Kenya Federation after failing to comply with Club licensing procedures, however, after appealing against the decision, the SDT reversed the same and reinstated the two teams. The former international says his players are ready to play.

"Justice has been served! We did not deserve to be relegated at all, we had complied and on sporting merit we were supposed to be on the pitch playing. As Sofapaka family, we are really happy and as a matter of fact, my players are ready to play, even now," Baraza told Goal.

"The new development is a motivation to us, and it will definitely push the players to give their best on the pitch."

Sofapaka survived relegation axe on the final day of the league last season, winning against Thika United as Ushuru fell to Posta Rangers.
