Ogari: Mathare’s relegation a blow to our title ambitions

Bandari FC team manager Albert Ogari has admitted that Mathare United’s relegation will dent their title ambitions with four matches left before the current campaign comes to a close.Last week, the FKF Caretaker Committee announced United’s drop to the second tier after they forfeited three matches in a row due to what the club has termed as a difficult financial situation and according to the law, they get expelled from the top tier and go down.With the first leg having been played to its conclusion, it means only the Slum’s Boys’ first stanza results will stand. Points earned by sides against them in the second leg will however be forfeited and this could have far-reaching consequences at both ends of the table. Kakamega Homeboyz who top the league will lose three points and so will relegation battling Vihiga Bullets who completed a double over the 2008 champions.⚽⚽⚽⚽⚽⚽⚽🅰️🅰️🅰️🅰️🅰️Kufikia sasa Yohana Mwita amefanikiwa kuufikisha mpira kambani mara 7️⃣ na kutoa pasi 5️⃣ za mabao 🔥💙⚓#BandariNiYetu pic.twitter.com/0IYubWHyKF— Bandari Football Club (@BandariOfficial) May 17, 2022 Bandari, who are just six points off league leaders Homeboyz and firmly in the title race will equally feel the pinch as a deduction of three points could all but end their quest for a first premier league title. The team has been reenergized under interim coach Anthony Kimani and is now in the title talks.Ogari admits that the deduction is a big setback although he takes solace in the fact that it is a move that will derail most of the teams in the league.“Our three points will go just like that. It has affected us and it is a major setback for our title ambitions. It is not only us affected by Mathare being relegated so most teams will be taken steps back with the decision,” he told Citizen.Bandari will be up against Kariobangi Sharks on Sunday at the Kasarani Annex Grounds.
