14th placed Ushuru FC face a tall order when they host visiting Chemelil Sugar on Saturday in a crunch Sportpesa Premier League tie slated for Kasarani. Ushuru’s coach Ken Kenyatta is all too aware what his boys need to do to bounce back. They are facing a side in great form sitting in fourth spot with 39 points.
In a recent interview, Kenyatta said “It is normal that when you lose a number of matches the confidence diminishes, so perhaps that is what the team is suffering from at the moment. They know they have worked so hard this season and should not be giving away points easily.”
“The two week break has been beneficial because it gave us time to reorganize things a little, although you must understand that at this point of the season you cannot do a total overhaul of the team. As always, I hope for a winning result. Injuries have messed up our plans,” he said.
During the international break, Chemelil Sugar took their time to sharpen their attack and work on some few techniques by organizing friendly matches as they prepare to collect the remaining fifteen points.
Chemelil Team Manager Hillary Ouma stressed out that the players are
ready to fight for the remaining points as there is no room for slip up.
Despite losing 3-1 to Gor Mahia on September 10th, Chemelil put up a splendid performance at home in their next match to bring down stubborn Ulinzi Stars 1-0.
“Yes of course they are ready. If you look at the League now there is
no easy match. If you tend to slow down even a little bit you are beaten, if you get it right then you win. In our friendly matches we were searching for the scoring touch and some techniques and we are ready for Ushuru,” noted Ouma.
