Technical University of Kenya’s chances of staying in the Kenya Hockey Union men’s Premier League are becoming slimmer and slimmer.

The students, who are in their debut season in the topflight league, are tucked at the bottom of the table with a paltry five points after losing again at the weekend.

Their 2-0 loss to Kenya College of Accountancy University (KCA-U) was their 17th defeat of the season from 20 matches.

They are yet to win a match since the second leg started in September and with eight games left, time is running out for them.

TUK coach Peter Mwathe admitted that the remaining eight matches would be defining for his charges, challenging them to rise to the occasion and secure their survival.

“Our attitude has got to change from henceforth. If we want to remain in the league we must win matches and time is running out,” Mwathe said.

The students’ sole win this season came against Western Jaguars on June 10.

They welcome Nakuru on Sunday at the City Park Stadium knowing only a win will do good to their course.

“Our players are good but they need to start believing in themselves and show what they can do on the pitch,” he added.

Jaguars occupy second last place on 18 points and also face the prospects of been axed.
