Sofapaka Team Manager Hillary Echesa ha stipped his side to claim maximum points against defending champions Gor Mahia.

The two teams, who are separated by just a point, will face each other in a top Kenyan Premier League match set for Nakuru on Sunday.

The former midfielder says that third-placed Batoto Ba Mungu are well prepared and there is enough motivation in the team as they seek a fifth straight victory.

"So far the team is okay, no injuries and we are ready for Gor Mahia. The win against Mathare was motivation and I am confident we can do the same if we play the way we played our last game. Preparations have been well, and every player is fighting hard to get a slot in the starting team.

"Gor Mahia is a good team, it is representing us in the Caf Confederation Cup, but that does not mean we are afraid of them. It is going to be a tough game for sure, but we believe we will get something," Echesa told Goal in an interview.

Sofapaka is currently third on the log with twenty-three points, one above K’Ogalo who are fourth.
