Asst Coach John Baraza


Sofapaka FC head coach John Baraza has said his side cannot afford to under rate former league side Re-Union, when the two sides clash in a Shield tie on Sunday at Camp Toyoyo.
Though Re-Union’s fortunes dwindled, to see the team drop from the top tier to now play in the Provincial Leagues, Baraza has vowed not to underrate them and said he would treat every match as a final as he seeks a season-double with the team.
“You can never afford to under-ate any team in football. Re- Union could be playing in the lower leagues, but they have quality players. Some of these players playing in the Nairobi leagues are very talented and can easily cause an upset, so I will field my best side of the moment to guarantee a winning start,” Baraza said.
He added: “Everyone wants to win the Shield in order to play in the CAF Confederation Cup next season, so every match is like a final for us.”
The match kicks-off at 3pm on Sunday
