We are ready for K’Ogalo, Coach of the Month Baraza says
Chemilil Sugar head coach, Mike Baraza, says his team is ready to cause an upset against champions Gor Mahia when the two teams clash Saturday at the Nyayo National Stadium.
Baraza was speaking after being crowned Fidelity Insurance Coach of the Month for August.
“The league is still tough, I have looked at our remaining fixtures and every match is like a final for us, every match has its own game plan. Our next game is against Gor Mahia, I’ve tactics in place to face them. When we are done with the champions, our aim is to finish in a good position, that’s why we are taking one step at a time,” said Baraza.
The millers took maximum points from Muhoroni Youth, Nairobi City Stars, Bandari and Sony Sugar to finish the month fourth with 36 points.
“When I was joining the club, I was optimistic about the squad despite most of them being new players and they needed time to adopt immediately.”
Despite that, Baraza is wary of a wounded K’Ogalo side that has played five games without a win in all competitions
“I have followed Gor Mahia in their recent matches. They are playing good football, its only that they have not been lucky. We will try to score early goals as we have done in the recent matches and maintain our tactical discipline against the champions.”
“I will want to crown this award with a win against the Green Army, they are a big club but we don’t fear them, we respect them and we are going to Nairobi to get the three points which are very crucial on our target to finish well at the end of the season,” he added.
The Kenya Premier League (KPL) resumes Wednesday after the international break with Sony Sugar hosting Ulinzi Stars at Awendo stadium while eight matches are set to be played during the weekend in different parts of the country.
