"It's a long journey, we have just done eight rounds so there are many more to come. We will continue taking each game at a time, the most important thing is to be more efficient every time we step onto the pitch and ensure we give fans something to smile about," he told Mathareunited.com.

The ‘Slum Boys’ opened a two-point lead between them a second-placed Bandari after a 3-2 win against Kakamega Homeboyz on Saturday. Chrispin Oduor scored a first-half brace but they needed a Cliff Nyakeya magic to cancel out Allan Wanga and Luke Namanda equalizers for the win.

The leaders will face Vihiga United in the round of nine matches on Sunday.
