Nyaudo sets off plans for Vihiga rematch

The Don is hoping to guide the team to another win over Vihiga United in the third meeting this season, this time in the SportPesa Shield

Head coach Dunstan Nyaudo has a tough task to prepare the team for the clash against Vihiga United in the SportPesa Shield, which comes just seven days after the Sunday 15th July league game which Ulinzi Stars won 2 – 0.

The match will be staged at the Mumias Sports Complex once again and they coach admits it will be another very tricky affair but has assured of good planning and a few chances.

Third meeting

The third round clash in the knockout competition will be the third meeting in the history of the two sides with Vihiga having won the first ever meeting, at Afraha Stadium in April.

“It will be a tricky game for us because after winning this one they will want to stop us in the next, and honestly they are a good side; very technical and fast.

“I will definitely have to change a few things; every game comes with its strategy and having played them here and won, they will definitely have some strategy for us as well, so we have to change our tactics,” he said.

Good planning

The coach added that the Sunday win was a factor of good planning for the game and lauded the state of the pitch at the Mumias Sports Complex.

“With good planning it is always very easy to get your targets; we had planned well for this match and we knew what we wanted. We also took advantage of the good playing surface. It is not easy to get such a surface in Kenya,” he added.

The team resumes training on Tuesday 17th July to prepare for the SportPesa Shield game.
