Nzoia eyeing Tusker scalp in FKF-PL clash at Ruaraka

Nzoia eyeing Tusker scalp in FKF-PL clash at Ruaraka

Nzoia Sugar FC tactician Salim Babu is confident his side will bag maximum points when they take on Football Kenya Federation Premier League defending Champions Tusker, in their next FKF Premier League assignment on Saturday in Ruaraka.

Babu says he will strive to ensure his side extends its good run in the Saturday assignment after picking a point in their draw against Kakamega Homeboyz last Weekend.

A win would lift the sugar millers to the top of the league standings, as they are just a point shy of current leaders Tusker who have 18 points, after seven outings.

"We are only planning on winning every match. The positive results so far have stirred up my boys and increased their confidence," Babu said.

Nzoia hve recorded positive results in the on-going FKF-PL campaign losing just once in eight matches played so far. Babu attributes the good run to team work and discipline at the club.

“Football is a game of instructions, the boys are disciplined and follow instructions well, we are in high spirits, we have just lost once and we want to keep the momentum,” Babu told Citizen Digital.

Tusker on the other hand will be seeking to bounce back after they handed their first defeat this season by Bandari, 2-1 on Sunday.

Coach Robert Matano told journalists after the loss at Mbaraki Sports Club – Mombasa that he wants an immediate reaction in the match against Nzoia.

“We don’t want to think about this loss anymore, we shift our focus to the next match, starting to plan how to win it,” he said.

Thus, like a wounded lion, Matano is expected to unleash all the arsenal he has against the high flying Nzoia.
