Head coach Benjamin Nyangweso hopes his charges will keep their tempo when they face Gor Mahia on Sunday 21st April
Head coach Benjamin Nyangweso will be hoping the team sustains its tempo when it gets to face Gor Mahia in the 24th round of matches on Sunday 21st April at the Moi Stadium in Kisumu, starting 4.15pm.
The team has gone unbeaten in three matches, winning two, and though the coach knows this will be a tougher clash, he is staying positive and hope to stop Gor Mahia’s charge as the reigning champions seek to consolidate top spot.
He admits the most dangerous department at Gor Mahia that he will have to deal with is the midfield and will definitely be prepared well for the same. All in all, he noted that his charges have instructions to give it a good fight.
“No game is easy; we prepare for Gor Mahia knowing we are facing a tough opponent and they are also among the top teams at the moment. They have good midfielders and that is the backbone of their success; I will be keen on ensuring they do not dominate in that section.
“What I can say in general is that we will give them a good contest. We have to bring our ‘A’ game; we will punch when they punch; we will fight,” he noted.
In the last meeting between the two sides, Ulinzi Stars picked a 2 – 0 win courtesy of Elvis Nandwa’s brace at Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos.
