Nakuru All Stars on ‘mission impossible’ plot to down Gor Mahia.

Nakuru All Stars coach Peter Okidi is hopeful his charges will rise to the occasion and disappoint Gor Mahia in their own yard during Sunday’s Kenyan Premier League match at City Stadium.

The Rift Valley-based side has found the run going tough since its reinstatement acquiring just three points and losing nine matches, and there is no sign of things getting better as the team faces the reigning champions away in what will be a slippery mountain to climb. But Okidi is optimistic his side might get good results.

“My team is young and I know it is not used to play in front of a big crowd, however I am working on their mentality and I think we might get something from the game. Gor Mahia is definitely going to make it hard for us because they have their unbeaten run to safe guard,”  Said Okidi

“Motivation is high in the camp; players are focused and are aiming to improve. It has been a tough learning experience for the team but I am sure in the second leg things will be different; we will have gotten needed experience to sail through.

“It is early to talk about us being relegated, looking at the table, we need a few points to get out of the relegation zone because teams on top of us have left us with a few points which can be easily attained. We will be successful in the second leg because we also intend to strengthen the squad to better heights.”
