Former premiership side Nzoia United on Wednesday afternoon extended their National league unbeaten run as they whipped their hosts KCB 1-0 in a league match played at camp Toyoyo in Nairobi.

With the win, Nzoia stretched away from close rivals Nakumatt, opening a comfortable lead between them and the second placed side who dropped crucial points on Wednesday. Nakumatt were held to a barren draw by Nairobi Stima at Ruaraka Grounds.

Nzoia united coached by former international Bernard Mwalala remain unbeaten this season after 28 matches and have amassed a total of 70 points with second placed Nakumatt managing 57 points from the same number of matches played.

The lead is a sure promotion sign for the Bungoma based outfit who are seeking readmission to the top tier league after dropping out in 2004.

Already the national soccer federation FKF led by president Nick Mwendwa have announced the possibilities of increasing the number of teams taking part in the premier league from the current 16 to eighteen next season.

Nzoia fc was disbanded in 2004 by the then board of director’s allegedly for running the company into losses. The then team’s management was also found guilty of squandering company funds through dubious expenditures, a finding that led to the sacking of all the soccer officials implicated in the racket.

Nzoia was among the top clubs in the region alongside Mumias Sugar fc and Pan Paper fc all of which do not exist after being disbanded by their respective support companies.

Once confirmed, depending on the outcome of the remaining matches, Nzoia will join Western Stima and Kakamega Homeboyz as the only teams from the talent rich Western region in the Premier League and will be the only team from Bungoma County.
