Sofapaka FC boss John Baraza is relishing a challenge against his friend and former teammate Nicholas Muyoti, recently appointed as Kakamega Homeboyz head coach. Baraza has already beaten Muyoti this season while he was with nzoia and he says he expects a tough outing when they clash again in Kakamega.
“I know Muyoti because he has been my close friend for a long time and we have played together. I know his tactics and I know how he plays so we should expect a very tough game in Kakamega,” Baraza said.
“It will be a close game but whoever commits the least mistakes tactically and technically will carry the day. We have prepared well and ready for the assignment,” Baraza further stated.
The coach says the boys’ morale is not reduced despite last weekend’s loss against Gor Mahia, saying he was proud of how his charges played and would like them to keep the same momentum.
“Our target is to remain within the top three this first leg and ensure that we don’t have a big gap with the leaders. Every point is important for us because this league is very tough,” the tactician offered.
