Omondi upbeat ahead of Ulinzi clash



KCB are confident that they can beat Ulinzi Stars and land a KPL Top 8 place next season.

The final weekend in the 2012 Tusker Premier League is with us and promises some fireworks considering that many things are still up for grabs.

First on the pot is the title, which will be decided between Gor Mahia, AFC leopards and Tusker FC, but that is not where it ends. There are still five teams in contention for a place in next season’s Top 8, with KCB one of the clubs looking to land a place in the marquee tournament.

Over the weekend they face Ulinzi Stars in Nakuru, and having beaten Sofapaka over the past weekend, head coach James Omondi is confident of repeating the feat against the soldiers.

“We are looking to land that Top 8 place at all costs, that is our main aim,” said Omondi. “There is one game left and three points on offer. That is what we are focused on. At Ulinzi Stars, we will have to play like men, we will have to work hard and show the quality we have on offer.”

“Against Sofapaka we did just that and showed everyone what we are capable of. “Over the weekend, we have to perform at such a level too, if we are to get a chance to win the game,” he said.

Against Sofapaka, the bankers displayed a brand of football that has won them many friends over the season and Omondi insists they are capable of more of the same.

“The team is in good shape and confidence is high,” he said.

“Over the weekend we played very well. We were the better team against a side that has very good players. It should be interesting against Ulinzi Stars, who like to force the game. My players, though, know what is needed and I am sure will perform to the best of their ability,” he added.

The bankers are in 11th position with 36 points, two behind SoNy and Chemelil Sugar, who are in position seven and eight respectively.
