The former Harambee Stars has been quoted by the team's portal saying it is a motivation, as his side prepares for a challenging match against league leaders. "This win means a lot and I am impressed by the fighting spirit of the boys because it shows there is growth among the young players. It is the kind of result we needed ahead of our next match against Nzoia."
