Sofapaka coach predicts tough clash against Nzoia

Sofapaka head coach Divaldo Alves has admitted that his side’s Kenyan Premier League match against Nzoia Sugar scheduled for Saturday 19th will be a tough match.

Alves revealed this while analyzing Nzoia's strengths and weaknesses as Sofapaka prepares to ensure they contain them and for a precious away victory.

"We are well aware of how they play. They have dangerous wingers with very high creativity with the wingers and fullbacks who love to join the attack. They are very fast and we need to be prepared well to go there and lock them not to play their usual games," he said as quoted by the club's official website. 

Alves added that the win against Mombasa based side Bandari FC has played a role in motivating his side. 

"It was very important in terms of points because we want to ensure that we are not far away from the top. It also gave us a boost of motivation and now the players believe that we can go to the top."
