Sofapaka takes on Afc Leopards in round six fixtures on Sunday. Ahead of the ‘cats derby’ club assistant captain David Nshimirimana has expressed confidence in turning around the current poor form of results.

Having gone winless in the last four encounters, David admits the results are a concern;

We prepare and play to win matches, and that’s what it all entails with our work; unfortunately, this has not been the case in our past four league matches. It is a concern for us as players, we have talked about it and only want to turn the poor results into positive ones. We hope to begin our comeback on Sunday against Afc Leopards.

The Burundi international admits to the lack of complete connection as the missing link in the squad

We really have a solid squad, but I believe we haven’t just jelled well. It takes time to get that combination, rythm, and connection. This has been evident in our previous encounters, but once we get this sorted, I believe we shall be talking of different results living forward.

The former Buildcon man acknowledges the Leopards match to be a tough one but must win the duel.

The leopards match will be a tough one because they have been struggling too, and I know they will want to return to winning ways just as we badly need too. This in itself makes the fixture a close one. We are playing at home, and we have to make good use of the home advantage to get the results. We want to turn around our bad run, and we have to begin to come Sunday

The Burundian concludes by rallying up his teammates to step more.

It has a collective responsibility as a playing unit. We have good quality, and I would like to urge my fellow teammates to double up their efforts for us to realize our targets.”
