Op­po­nents worry Tarus ahead of the KVF play-off ties

The Star (Kenya) - - Sports Local - BY AGNES MAKHANDIA/

Gen­eral Ser­vice Unit men’s vol­ley­ball team coach Gideon Tarus is wary of the up­sets their op­po­nents can cause as the team pre­pares to de­fend Kenya Vol­ley­ball Fed­er­a­tion league ti­tle.

The reign­ing KVF cham­pi­ons will come up against their lo­cal neme­sis Kenya Pris­ons, hosts Kenya Ports Author­ity and new com­ers Nairobi Wa­ter as they seek to de­fend the ti­tle ahead of the league play-offs set for Novem­ber 25-27 at Makande hall, Mom­basa.

GSU fin­ished the league top of the stand­ing and were un­beaten with 35 points and the tac­ti­cian has cau­tioned his charges not to be com­pla­cent.

The tac­ti­cian said they are not go­ing to un­der­rate any side be­cause all the sides that made the play-off cut are there by merit and will be eye­ing same ti­tle.

“Pris­ons have the ex­pe­ri­ence and are reg­u­lars in the play-offs and will be all out to re­claim the ti­tle they won in 2015. KPA will be mak­ing their sec­ond ap­pear­ance this sea­son, hav­ing fin­ished in third last year and they are equally good. We can’t also write off Nairobi Wa­ter who are mak­ing their de­but this sea­son. They have made good ac­count of them­selves after fin­ish­ing sec­ond in the league with 32 points. Our plan is to take one match at time hop­ing that the re­sults will go our way,” said Tarus.
