NAIROBI, Kenya, January 13 – Mwamba RFC veteran Humphrey Kayange says the club will start dreaming of lifting the Kenya Cup trophy for the first time in three decades, when they reach the play-offs.

The former national sevens skipper who was on the touchline when Mwamba suffered their second loss of the season 22-23 to Strathmore Leos believes the team will make it to the semi-finals set for March.

“It has been a good start for Mwamba since we are playing very well. We have been building from one game to the other and our focus is to make sure we give it the right push to see we make it for the play-offs.

“When we get there, then we can start believing and thinking of winning the Kenya Cup. But at the moment we are just making sure we keep on winning our remaining matches,” the 33-year-old told Capital Sport.

Mwamba who last qualified for the semis in 2012/13 season will be looking to improve on their sixth finish, after rebuilding the squad that blended upcoming and experienced players.

With an old boy of the club John Mbai taking charge this season, the team that takes on three-time champions KCB in their next fixture at Impala Club are fifth on 25 points after seven matches.
