thumbnail Hello,

The army men coach Sammy Simiyu cautions AFC, Gor Mahia, Tusker that they should not be written off as the league enters homestretch

Ulinzi Stars coach Sammy Simiyu has cautioned AFC Leopards, Gor Mahia and Tusker FC that they are still firmly in the race for the league crown.

“We are very much encouraged with the win against Sofapaka because it has boosted our morale a lot. We want to keep the same spirit when we travel to Oserian on Sunday and I love the spirit in the team. Everyone is eager to work hard."

“We are going for maximum points against Oserian because we want to increase our point tally and also want to win the league title. One thing for sure, we are still in the title race and our closest rivals should be made to understand that. Ours will be to fight until the last day.”

Simiyu hailed his players saying that they are responding well and coming up greatly from a three game winless streak.

The team played a friendly against Nakuru Olympic on Wednesday and won 2-0 with Oliver Rutto and Allan Muhati hitting both goals.

“We wanted to use the match to test the different formations we are going to play with against Oserian and I am glad that most of them worked well. The players are really coming up well and the best thing is that we are injury free.”

“We are now going back to training with the vision of correcting the mistakes we saw in the friendly plus perfecting where we are okay. We are looking at the Oserian match with keen eyes because we want to grasp a win there.”

The match against Oserian will be played on Sunday at the Oserian Complex in Naivasha.
