for himself in the league.
“Francis is currently performing
admirably, and I am genuinely proud of him. He is a striker who consistently
gets at least three chances in a match, and I just want him to maintain his
focus and confidence. I’m confident he can finish the season on a high note.”
"As a team, we have to maintain a
winning mentality. Facing Shabana FC is another opportunity for us to showcase
the level of our improvement this season. We are committed to giving our best
on the field,” KCB FC Captain Gabriel Andika noted.
