Ban­dari psyched up for Ulinzi show­down

The Star (Kenya) - - Sports Local - BY PHILIP ONYNAGO /

Ban­dari FC have vowed to beat Ulinzi Stars and fin­ish the Sport­spesa Premier League in a re­spectable ninth po­si­tion when they travel to Nakuru this weekend.

While say­ing the team board of man­age­ment was happy with the team’s sec­ond leg per­for­mance, Ban­dari FC tech­ni­cal direc­tor Ed­ward Oduor said it was their in­ten­tion to fin­ish the sea­son on a high. “It’s un­for­tu­nate we didn’t fin­ish in the top eight but we’re happy with our sec­ond leg rally which saw the team lose only three games out of the fif­teen games they played. We be­lieve next year will even be bet­ter,” he said.

Oduor ex­plained that the stand-in coach Kennedy Od­hi­ambo had taken a bit longer to un­der­stand the play­ers and their best play­ing po­si­tion and this made the team lose matches they could have eas­ily won.

Oduor said the youth­ful play­ers who were given more play­ing time in the sec­ond leg, had earned their place in the team and will form the in­te­gral part of the team next year.
