Sofapaka finished the 2017 Kenyan Premier League in the second position, behind eventual winners Gor Mahia.
This was a big improvement from the previous season where Batoto ba Mungu survived relegation by a whisker. Team's head coach Sam Ssimbwa is adamant his team can go all the way to the top this season.
“All eighteen teams definitely want to finish the season as champions. None will be aiming to a lesser thing and Sofapaka is not an exception. You see, last season we did our best and managed to finish in the second position, so we will definitely be aiming at going a position higher and that means winning the league.
“I have a team that can do this, the quality is there and it is the most important thing.”
Batoto ba Mungu won their maiden league crown back in 2009 during their debut season in the top tier.
