Thika United head coach James Nandwa has challenged his players to take home matches with great seriousness as the league kicks off.
His team will start the 2017 KPL season with a match away to Mathare United on Sunday March 12, but he strongly believes that winning home matches is what will give them an edge as the league continues.
“First and foremost we are glad that the league is on and the fixtures are out, it was not easy for us as coaches to prepare every week in anticipation of a kickoff only to let down by a delay. There is no easy fixture in football, what am urging my players, is to take every home game like a final, and always work as a team towards the target of the day.
“At least we start with teams that were in the league last season ,apart from Zoo (Kericho) and I know new comers always have the surprise element, but we shall be ready for them as well; all in all we just want to start well and build on from there” he told the club’s official website.
The Brookeside sponsored club finished at position 12 with 34 points in 2016.
