Bandari United’s good run in recent past can be attributed to their newly acquired mode of transport, Standard Gauge Railway (SGR).
Bandari has adopted a new form of transport, preferring the train to a bus for away fixtures, something that head coach Paul Nkata says has greatly reduced fatigue rate in his squad.
“Travelling by train has cut the team’s travelling time by 10 hours and this is something positive because i don’t experience much fatigue from my players as opposed to when we used the bus,” said the Ugandan, who won the league last season with Tusker before moving work station to mombasa.
The Dockers have grabbed four goals on the road in their last two outings, bundling out Uwezo Academy from GOtv Shield to progress to the round of 32 thanks to a 3-1 win in Machako followed by a sweet 1-0 win over Kenyan Premier League defending champion, Tusker in Meru last weekend.
Bandari will again be on the road this weekend when they take on K’Ogalo in the GOtv round of 32 at Thika Stadium.
The Docker are currently seventh on the Kenyan Premier League table, just five points adrift of leaders and their saturday’s opponents, Gor Mahia.
