The former Tusker tactician says anything is possible at this time of the season when teams are fighting to avoid the chop from top flight league
When the season began, Coach Sammy “Pamzo” Omollo was tasked with the duty of helping the team he had led to the Kenya league title the previous year to retain their title.
But now with seven matches to go, the former Tusker man has been given an even tougher duty of ensuring Oserian FC are not relegated just a year after making a return to top flight football.
“Anything is possible at this time of the season when every point counts and teams are fighting for survival or to win the championship,” Omollo told Goal.com ahead of their encounter with Gor Mahia on Wednesday.
The Naivasha-based side recruited the championship winning coach to avert possible demotion and in his first game in charge he led them to an impressive 1-0 win over Nairobi City Stars to help them inch ever closer to the safety position.
“In the period that I have been here (at Oserian) I have seen the commitment of both the players and the staff. The players have shown no fear and that gives me hope that we will beat the drop.”
The basement club face a stiff opposition in the face of Gor Mahia, who are unbeaten in all competitions under their Croatian coach Zdravko Logarusic and Omollo believes a tough match awaits his charges.
“We expect a very tough game because Gor are one of the top teams in the league who are vying to win the title but we will be ready to unsettle their ambitions.”
Oserian go in to the match with a clean bill of health with every player fit and in good condition to contest for the starting eleven.
