MASAKA CHUFFED ON CLEANSHEET EYES FOR MORE

Simon Masaka is delighted with his first clean sheet and is hopeful for more despite limited playing time.

On the first clean sheet 

I’m overjoyed to have my first top-flight clean sheet. I have been longing to achieve this at the very top and I am glad it came over the weekend. It is a huge plus for me and it shows I am heading the right way in my career.

On playing time:
This is my second season in the Premier League, and as a young player, I’ve always known it would take time for me to break into the ranks and get more playing time.
I’m glad I’ve been learning a lot from my fellow custodians, who are extremely knowledgeable. I hope this is the beginning of many more minutes on the pitch in upcoming fixtures.

On the Bandari fixture:
We have two crucial matches to fight for, beginning with an away encounter against Bandari. They have been doing well, which will make the match a tough one, but we have prepared well and we are definitely going for a win because this is like a final for us.

On coach David Ouma:
He has been so encouraging, and when he gave me the opportunity to start between the sticks, I felt so motivated. I knew this was an opportunity to make a statement and I am glad that it came to pass. I am so thankful for the trust placed in me by the manager, and given another opportunity, I am fired up to give my best in the remaining matches.
