Nzoia Sugar head coach Bernard Mwalala feels his team is capable of competing with the big boys in the Kenyan Premier League.
After a good start in the top tier where they collected four points from the initial two matches, the newbies fell 2-1 to AFC Leopards last weekend. Despite that, head coach Mwalala is happy with his charges who he says played well.
"Honestly speaking, majority of my players have never played in such a high intensity match like the one we played against AFC Leopards. We played well, and I am happy with the way the team responded. Though we were a little bit unfortunate not to get something from the match, the team has proved a point.
"The message is clear, we have what it takes to play in the top tier, and we will definitely be competitive," he told Goal.
