Ushuru FC head coach Ken Kenyatta has rued bad luck after failing to make a return to KPL surrendering a two-legged promotion race to Thika United.
Thika won the first leg encounter at Thika Stadium 2-1. The second encounter was played at Narok and the match ended 0-0 meaning Nicholas Muyoti and his team remains in the 2018 KPL edition.
- We would have prefered that the match goes on to be decided by post-match penalties but that was not the case as this is the game of football with different possible results. It was their time to remain in the league but I believe our time is coming.
- In the second half, we tried our best but it was not our day. We came with our plans and even our opponents had their counter plans, Kenyatta said after the match.
Two teams were automatically promoted to the top tier: Vihiga United and Wazito FC. Western Stima and Muhoroni were dropped and will date the National Super League next year.
