"We have lost three matches in a row, which is not a good thing to us. Our morale, psychologically was affected and despite our good display on the pitch, more is needed. We have been working on ways to build our confidence because we need a good result against them (Nakumatt).

It was earlier this week when the former Harambee Stars coach revealed his plans in the transfer window. "We will sign a few experienced players to strengthen the side. We lack experience in the team and we have to address the issue," he told Goal.
