Baraza has now admitted that it was not easy against the bankers despite the win. “We were very lucky to get the win. It was not an easy match. KCB gave us a tough test and I must credit them for the way they played.

“I don’t want to blame my players because KCB made it difficult for us and I must say that they are very unlucky to go home without a point. Honestly speaking, they deserved to get something from this match.”

Sofapaka have now moved to fourth on the 18-team log after accumulating 27 points.
