Nzoia feeling no pressure after brilliant start

Nzoia feeling no pressure after brilliant start

Nzoia Sugar FC tactician Salim Babu says his side is under no pressure to keep performing following their surprisingly impressive start to the FKF Premier League season.

The club that barely survived relegation last year has been the league’s standout team for its showcase football and are joint top of the standings with champions Tusker FC on points.

Coach Salim Babu underscored they are calm to avoid putting big demands on themselves like starting to think they can win the league title.

“For us as a team, finishing in top position will be good for us. The boys are ambitious and this season we won’t struggle with fighting relegation, at the same time we don’t want to look over ambitious by discussing the League title.

“We decided to make Sudi a fortress this season, we don’t want any team to pick points here. We want to ensure we do not find ourselves in relegation form like last year,” Babu told Citizen Digital.

Nzoia have 24 points after 12 league rounds, leaving them trailing only Tusker on goal difference ahead of Saturday’s fixture against Ulinzi Stars in Langata.
