Bandari defender Bernard Odhiambo believes Danson Chetambe’s hard work will push the Football Kenya Federation Premier League side far.

Chetambe is leading the list of assist providers in the Premier League with six assists and after congratulating the midfielder, Odhiambo has said the rest of the players are bound to be encouraged by his output.

“I want to take this opportunity to congratulate you on your great performances so far. Having six assists is not an easy task, but you have managed so far,” the centre-back wrote on his Facebook page.

“I urge you to keep it up and keep pushing to get even more good results till you take all the awards in the FKF PL.

“Your hard work will push the rest of us to perform even better and the team will grow from this seed. You are a joy to watch and a great human both on and off the pitch. I am happy to play alongside you and am always confident in everything that you give.

“May the Almighty God bless you and keep awarding you gift after gift and may you lead us to greater heights.”

Gor Mahia’s captain Kenneth Muguna is the second player on the chart with four assists although he has played three fewer games compared to Chetambe’s.

Lawrence Juma, who earned a hat-trick for Sofapaka against Mathare United – is third while Derrick Otanga of KCB is fourth.

Bandari are sixth on the log with 12 points and look a solid side now although they had to make a change when Ken Odhiambo left for Sofapaka.

After Twahir Muhiddin had taken care of them temporarily, former AFC Leopards coach Casa Mbungo was later appointed to steer the coastal side.
