Nzoia are going through a nasty league season and find themselves rock bottom after 19 games.

Nzoia Sugar FC captain Harun ‘Mwalimu’ Thomas has revealed that his teammates and the coaching staff are working around the clock to find ways of getting out of their current predicament in the league.

Nzoia, along with several others, is mired in a fight against relegation, a situation that has become increasingly tense as the season progresses.

The defensive midfielder, who can also slot into central defence, has revealed that it has not been easy being in the position they currently are and has revealed what they will do to get out of their current predicament.

“We are trying to get ourselves out of the position,” Thomas insisted.

“As players and the technical team, we will try to work hard in order to ensure that we do well this season.”

So far the club has unveiled three players: defender Daniel Masengo from Shitaho Soccer SC in Kakamega County, Sharif Ali from fellow FKF Premier League team Muhoroni Youth, and striker Obed Washington Manyonyi from Rosterman United.

Thomas believes that the additions will strengthen the side enough in order to achieve their immediate target of steering clear away from the drop zone.

“I cannot for sure say whether there will be changes made to the squad but we have signed two or three players who we think will strengthen us which will enable us to get out of the season.

“We are highly hoping we will not go down. That is our biggest target now, to avoid relegation and to try to ensure we remain in the league.”

Thomas has pleaded with the fans not to give up on the team.

“The fans must not give up. They understand what we are going through at the moment and we hope they can hang on and help us get through this with their support.”

The club's journey this season has been arduous, with only three wins in their opening 19 matches and just one victory in the last six games.
