Shabana must "fight like lions" to avoid relegation, says club official

A Shabana FC club official has urged the team to avoid relegation with a strong finish in the last three matches.

Shabana FC has been challenged by club patron Sam Nyamweya to do everything possible to escape the jaws of relegation in the 2023/2024 Football Kenya Federation Premier League. 

Currently second from the bottom with three matches remaining, the team is in a precarious position.

Nyamweya urged the club to put on a strong finish in their remaining fixtures to ensure they remain in the top-flight league. 

"I want to encourage Shabana FC to put up a strong fight in the last few games to ensure they survive relegation. Shabana has sparked more interest in the league since its promotion, and while the performance has not been up to the required expectations, the management and technical bench are working tirelessly to ensure the club retains its status in the top league," said Nyamweya in a statement.

"As patron of Shabana, I am offering full support to the players and technical bench as they prepare for the final three games. I am encouraged by their commitment, and I trust they will deliver good results," concluded Nyamweya.

The Kisii-based team earned promotion to the top-flight league this season after a 17-year absence. 

Shabana currently occupies the 16th position in the FKF Premier League table with 29 points and must pull off a string of good results from their remaining fixtures against AFC Leopards, Bidco United, and Murang’a Seal to retain their status.

With the league drawing to a close the pressure is mounting on Shabana FC. 

Tore Bobe supporters are hopeful that their beloved club can defy the odds and maintain its place in the top division.

The upcoming fixtures will be crucial and the team's ability to handle the pressure and deliver under such high stakes will determine their fate.
