The Tusker coach insists that the Brewers are still the team to beat in the top tier after seeing off Homeboyz on Wednesday

Tusker FC head coach Robert Matano says the Brewers will remain a force in the Kenyan Premier League (KPL).

The 11-time league champions claimed a 3-1 win against Kakamega Homeboyz on Wednesday to revive their faint hopes of winning the league this season.

Matano is impressed with the way his charges responded following the 2-0 defeat suffered against Gor Mahia in their earlier outing.

"Yes we slipped, but that does not mean we fell, Tusker is a big team, a force in the KPL. Despite us losing to Gor Mahia, I saw the spirit was there and the players proved it against Homeboyz,” Matano told Goal in an interview.

“I told my boys to be attack-minded and I am happy it worked, because we scored goals and won the game."

Matano is eagerly waiting for the game against Sofapaka, hoping to get a positive result.

“It is going to be a tough match for sure but we are ready for them," he added.

The Brewers have managed to get 41 points and are currently placed sixth on the KPL table.
