Eleven games to the end of the season, six wins, ten draws and seven losses in the 23 games they have played so far in the 2021/22 Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Premier League season, and 12th on the log with 28 points as Kakamega Homeboyz lead standings with 49 points.
This is a Bidco United’s league season in a nutshell, a performance that is more less the same like last season when they were making their debut in the top flight and ended up finishing 11th, losing 2-1 on the final day against champions Tusker at the Utalii Grounds.
Despite being on a four-match unbeaten run in which they have drawn two and won two, head coach Antony Akhulia is not taking any casualties within his squad.
The former midfielder has taken his players head on issuing a stern warning to each one of them to fight for the badge, right from training to the matches or risk being shown axed by the club.
“The players have different report cards of their performance because there are those who are doing very well and there are those who are still struggling to cope with life here (at Bidco United). But having said that, every player will be judged individually by how he is performing and life is about pressure,” he said.
The Oilers made some signings in the midseason transfer window, Akhulia revealing they too will be closely monitored as the club seeks to scale greater heights.
“You can’t be in a team that is paying you salaries and yet you are bringing jokes when instead you are expected to help the team in performance,” he added.
Bidco United have a date with Kariobangi Sharks as the league resumes this weekend after a two-month international break.
