Bandari coach Paul Nkata has expressed reservation about the congested Kenya Premier League fixtures.

Speaking during a post match interview after watching his side beat Nzoia 2-1 at KPA Mbaraki, the Ugandan coach said fatigue has taken its toll on the players due to request traveling.

“As you are aware we played Sofapaka on May 1, Mathare United on May 5, before playing Nzoia today (May 10). Our match against Kariobangi Sharks was initially set for next Sunday (May 14), but has been rescheduled for Saturday (May 13). We hardly have time for rest as we have to travel on Friday.”

During the match, Bandari fielded their teenage sensation and scorer of the first goal Willy Lugogo, alongside other youngsters such as John Avire, Tyrone Sisia.

Kariobangi Sharks host Bandari in a pressure cooker at City Stadium on Saturday kick-off 15:00 hours, a match Nkata believes is tricky. “The match against Sharks is tricky and will be tough. The Kenya Premier League is like a marathon. The result of one match makes a huge difference on the table standing.”
