Bidco United made clear their intentions of gaining promotion to the top tier Kenyan Premier League when they edged past Migori Youth 2-1 at the Thika Stadium on Sunday, January 19, 2020.
The win, Bidco’s 13th out of 20 matches, kept them within touching distance of runaway leaders Nairobi City Stars, who have commanded a seven-point lead as at round 20. The Thika based side is six points clear of third-placed Vihiga United, who fell to FC Talanta on Sunday.
City Stars mantains its seven-point lead, Bidco United opens up a six-point lead. Two horse race?
