Zoo Kericho FC will on Friday 6th March host us at the Green Stadium, Kericho. Ahead of the match, head coach John Baraza has termed the tie a tough but a must win match.
On facing Zoo Kericho in Kericho;
It’s going to be a very tough match for us because they Zoo are the host and equally both sides lost in their past two matches. They Zoo and us are both looking for a win and this will make it a hard one.
On whether loosing consecutively a big concern;
We haven’t had a good run last month losing two matches in a row. It a huge concern to us as a team and as the technical bench. It has to some extent tampered with the players confidence and in addition brought in more pressure on my side as the head coach. We talked about it and our focus now is on collecting ourselves and moving forward promptly as possible. We want to get our confidence back and have a proper consistency level.
On our season objective and target; Well we had our targets and that was to win the league, unfortunately we are abit off the race and so we are focusing on finishing in a respectable position. We believe we can achieve by turning around our season starting this Friday in Kericho.
On whether Zoo match a must win one;
As early said it will be a tough one but equally the pressure is really on us as a unit to deliver and as such we have to win the tie to at least relieve us off the pressure and get ourselves back on track.
On any injury concerns;
We have some injury and knock concerns, we missed Elli Asieche last weekend and we further lost two others last weekend while facing Ulinzi Stars. We are hopeful that they be okay in time for Friday’s match.
The match will kick off 3pm at Green Stadium Kericho.
