Kimanzi Demands Total Concentration From His Charges

Mathare United coach Francis Kimanzi has warned his players not to get carried away by the team’s recent fine form and lose focus as the league leaders return to action on Wednesday to face Nairobi City Stars at the Nyayo National Stadium.The match kicks off at 2pm.

The match will pave way for the second clash pitting AFC Leopards
against visiting Kakamega Homeboys from 5.15pm. Mathare United registered  an emphatic away 1-0 win over Thika United during their last outing to rise on top of the 16 team’s  summit with 11 points, similar to AFC Leopards  but they boast of a better goal difference.

“This is the point where we need total concentration.We need to work even harder in the next couple of matches in the first leg, otherwise our happiness will be short-lived. I have told the players to stay calm and not allow to get carried away just because we’re top of the table, there is no room for complacency,” Kimanzi quipped.

The Dutch trained tactician  added, “There is always room for improvement. We are not as strong as we want it to be yet, nonetheless, there is notable progress every day. We need to win the game to maintain our ascendancy and that’s our target.”

With Harambee Stars midfielder Eric Johana in form assisted by Harrison Mwendwa, Alfonce Ndonye, David Mwangi, Vincent Okello, Obadiah Ndege and set-piece specialist Noah Abich,nothings seems to be  going wrong for the Britam sponsored side.

City Stars sitting 13th in the log with three points have been very impressive under coach John “Bobby” Ogolla despite failing  to  win any of their matches.They drew 2-2  with Gor Mahia  during their last outing where they stretched K’ogalo to the limit.

Dangerman Jimmy Bageya will be the talisman to lead the Kawangware based side against Mathatre United.
