Default Muntons pilsner kit - how important is secondary fermentation

So the kit is a hopped LME, with the add-on fermentable 3 lbs of spraymalt extra light DME.

Doesn't seem like there'd be a lot of sediment in the first place, so I'm wondering how much it'll matter regarding clarity if I don't do a secondary fermentation. Brewing today and have the 2-bucket Brewer's Best kit with no carboy.

I rarely transfer my ale beers to a secondary. I typically let them go 3-4 weeks in the secondary and then cold crash for 24-36 hours to get more sediment to drop out. I cannot think of any reason why this kit brew would need to be transfered to a secondary at all.

Looks like it is a pilsener kit, so to be true to style it should be lagered (long secondary at cool temperatures).

I found out it's actually a pilsner style ale, so there's no lagering required.
