Not even a change in coaching personnel, Frank Ouna for Salim Ali has changed their fortunes which continued to go from bad to worse with a 1-0 defeat to Bidco United in Thika in the sole fixture played on Thursday 15 July 2021. Eric Gichimu's 44th goal winning the game for the league first timers who sit 11th with 31 points from 24 outings.

Don't shoot us!

We are just amplifying the thoughts that are on every football pundit's mind as the current FKFPL season is firmly in its home stretch. Well, for a side that has produced great footballing talent over the past two and a half decades, it is looking ominous for the 2008 champions and it really is just a matter of time.

Sample their record this season...just 3 wins, 5 draws and 16 defeats for a cumulative total of 14 points. They have managed 19 goals ,have conceded 37 and are placed 17th, bottom of the log, two points adrift of fellow strugglers Vihiga United.

The road ahead is difficult for Mathare United, and if they pull FKFPL survival, that will be a great escape act.
