Enosh Ochieng celebrates his goal against Wazito FC on Sunday 16th September, 2018 at Green Stadium
As the team enjoys a fine run towards the final stages of the season, the players’ efforts have not gone unnoticed, with the team seeking a top three finish as well as clinching the SportPesa Shield title and following the win over Wazito FC, the fourth win in a row, head coach Dunstan Nyaudo has lauded the growth in the team.
His picks after the Wazito game in particular, were Enosh Ochieng and defender Boniface Andayi.
Enosh scored the lone goal that earned the team three vital points, making it his third goal in four matches after netting in the wins over Chemelil Sugar, and River Plate earlier on while he also has two assists in the process.
Enosh’s season has been blighted by injury, which made him miss a big part of the first leg but in the form he is in, the coach is convinced he is set for massive growth if he can stay injury free.
“Had it not been injuries, I have always seen Enosh as our main man up there. He has been scoring consistently lately and I am sure he will keep improving because he can push himself, he plays for the team and not himself and he also follows instructions. He will definitely make big steps in his career if he can stay injury free.
Andayi, on the other hand, was making his Kenyan Premier League debut and was key in aiding the team pick a clean sheet, as he partnered with skipper of the day, Hassan Mohamed.
“Andayi is a growing player and you can see his commitment at the back; he is a player that is so promising and in him I can see a future center back for Kenya with the way he is coming up,” he added.
Meanwhile, the coach has had to do with a lengthy injury list in the recent times. Going to the Wazito game, he missed at least eight first team players but he is confident in the abilities of players available.
“What has really bogged us in the recent days is the injury juggernaut; I have eight first team players out and that is why it is always good to keep the players match fit. I have been rotating this team because you never know when they come in handy and anyone who proves it here gets a chance,” he added.
The team will be facing Gor Mahia on Wednesday 19th September in the 31st match of the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) campaign.
