We have to improve - Olaba

With the league kick-off only nine days away, AFC Leopards head coach Tom Olaba says they will have to work extra hard in order to start the season on a positive footing.

Olaba was speaking in relation to their friendly match against Division One side KRA, which they lost 2-0 on Wednesday.

“We have made some positive steps in terms of the quality of our game but the match against KRA also proved to us that there are some areas that we need to work on before the season starts,” said Olaba.

“We are already past the KRA loss because we consider pre-season matches as guides to help us improve our skills. I have already made my players understand that we have a few days to perfect our strategy and I hope that they learnt something from the defeat.”

Leopards are lined up to play another Division One side, Administration Police, on Sunday 17 February and Olaba says that this match will help them find out if the loopholes in the KRA match have been sealed.

“We are taking the match against AP very seriously because it is among our last pre-season friendlies,” he said.

The Leopards will open their 2013 league bid against Chemelil Sugar FC.
