Ochieng is yet to keep a clean sheet in the league despite showing glimpses of maturing into a top keeper

Mathare United youthful keeper, Job Ochieng' is set to be handed his third start of the season against Posta Rangers on Wednesday.

The 19-year-old has featured twice since he was promoted to the senior ranks in January. He made his debut in a 1-0 loss to Wazito but earned his second start in a 2-2 draw against Tusker last Sunday.

Ochieng spent a major part of the season as an understudy to David Okello and Robert Mboya but Francis Kimanzi could be convinced that the young custodian is now ripe for the first team.

"It is very rare to get playing time in your first season in the top flight as a rookie. I want to continue working harder to repay his trust in me with good performances on the pitch," said Ochieng' who turns 20 in December told Mathareunitedfc.co.ke.

Ochieng is yet to keep a clean sheet in the league despite showing glimpses of maturing into a top keeper.

"Okello has been really supportive and I have learned a lot from him since he joined us. He always advises me on what to do in different game situations.

"I think I have learned a lot from those two games and I now want to go for a clean sheet in the next game I play.”
