'Its not over'-Nandwa

NAIROBI, Kenya, October 14 – Tusker FC coach James Nandwa has not given up hope of regaining the Kenya Premier League (KPL) title just yet.
The former Harambee Stars assistant coach told Capital Sport on Thursday that the league is still very open with five matches and any of the top three clubs have a chance to win it.

“At the moment every team has five matches and anything can happen. We are taking this fight to the wire. Ulinzi are favourites now but we are going to fight throughout those five matches,” said Nandwa.

Tusker are third in the league standings, seven points behind leaders Ulinzi who they face at on Sunday at City Stadium.

Ulinzi head into this match on the back of a four match winning streak and not conceding a goal in their last five encounters, in line with their much vaunted reputation as the most stingiest defence in the league.

“We must work hard because we are at home which gives us an advantage. They have good fighting spirit but I have faith in my boys who hold the ball well and if they get that opportunity to score, Ulinzi will crack,” said Nandwa.

Nandwa believes the break in KPL action has rejuvenated his team ahead of this must win fixture.

“We’ve trained well throughout those two weeks and happy with the players because they are in form. The match is going to be tough because it is like a decider. We don’t have any injuries to worry about as well,” said Nandwa.
