Sofapaka are hoping to gain all the maximum points in the remaining Kenyan Premier League first leg matches after club shift focus to finishing on ‘a respectable’ position.

The 2009 champions made it clear at the start of the season that they were going for the title, but with reality now checking in, coach John Baraza has since dropped the far-fetched dream of dethroning Gor Mahia as they turn their attention elsewhere.

Sofapaka have been blowing hot and cold following a string of poor performances; something that led to a change of guard in the technical bench.

At the moment, Baraza’s side have 21 points, having won 6games, drawn 3of them, while lost 5matches, placing them at position 6 on the KPL log and 14points adrift of leaders Gor Mahia. Baraza, who replaced Ugandan coachSsimbwa, says he will be going all out to give his best and help the team finish the first leg on a high.

“What I can say is that we are on track, and we shall be better with time. Our main target right now is to collect as many points as possible in the remaining first leg matches. It is not easy, it has never been easy for sure but the players are giving their best.

“Right now I cannot talk about new signings; we want to concentrate on the matches remaining.”

Sofapaka will next take on Zoo FC at the Narok Stadium this coming Saturday
