Omondi wants KCB response



KCB coach James Omondi hopes his side bounce back from their loss to Nairobi City Stars by recording a positive result against Mathare United this coming weekend.

The bankers were beaten 1-0 at the Hope Centre in Kawangware on Saturday, as they fell to defeat number 12 of the season.

With the reverse, they are now three points behind Chemelil Sugar who are in eighth spot in the standings, as the race for the lucrative KPL Top 8 competition spots for next term hots up.

Omondi was disappointed with the loss to City Stars, seeing as it is a team in which he had targeted three points due to their lowly position on the Tusker Premier League table. He now looks forward to facing Mathare United and hopes that his players will lift themselves for the vital clash.

“We lost a game we should have won over the weekend,” said Omondi. “I had said that we could win the City Stars game because we are in good form and were playing very well.

“Sadly for us, we did not give the required performance at all and we lost the game to a team that wanted it more than we did. I felt and still feel that it was a game we should have won and to this point, I am still disappointed. It is three points wasted for us.

“It is, however, not something we can dwell on, we now have to move on,” concluded Omondi.

The bankers face Ulinzi Stars, Sofapaka and Mathare in their final matches of the season, and Omondi says they will need to raise their game. “We are now in a tricky position as far as the Top 8 is concerned,” he said.

“The games coming up are not easy and so we will have to be at our very best if we are to get anything. The Top 8 is still achievable but we will have to play very well if we are to have any chance of catching up with the others.”

“We will work hard in training this week and do our very best, but the players have to show up starting on the weekend. It will be tough but we have to take the teams on.”

KCB are currently placed 11th on the log.
