With five wins on the trot, former Kenyan Premier League side KCB is bullish of worthwhile tidings as the second tier National Super League (NSL) enters its home stretch.

The bankers are currently placed fifth in the 20-team log with 63 points and within two points of promotion cutoff spot four currently occupied by Nakumatt.

The team has taken a road trip to Awendo in search of a further three points against basement side Shabana on Sunday 13 November, and while on journey, head Coach Leonard Saleh shared the reasons behind the team’s resurgence, and future expectations.

“We went through a lean period but we have since found our footing. The players are now very highly motivated and are aware of the task ahead,”

“The point the league has reached is crucial and every game for us is a do or die,” he said

KCB are seeking to bounce back to the Premier League where they came tumbling down from at the close of the 2015 season and how far they can go depends on points they collect in their five remaining games beginning with Shabana on Sunday.

Thereafter the team plays St. Joseph’s and Police away, Agro Chemicals and MOSCA in home games.
