Coach John Baraza expects Mathare United to come all out for revenge when the two sides clash in a Kenyan Premier League fixture in Machakos on Sunday. Sofapaka won 4-1 in the first leg at Kasarani and Mathare will be looking to atone that defeat.
“Obviously when you beat someone once, they will always come tough to try and ensure you don’t beat them again. This will make the match tougher for us. Again, matches between us and Mathare have always been explosive and I expect it to be this way again,” Baraza said.
He adds; “They are a tough team with good technical and tactical players and we have prepared well for them. We have trained so well this week and I expect us to fight for maximum points.”
On the title race; “The gap between us and Gor Mahia is not that big and I believe they can slip anywhere. You never know. As much as they have games at hand, they still have to sweat it out on the pitch.”
The coach will have a clean bill of health with everyone available for the game.
