07 August 2014, 17:42
Nairobi - Ulinzi Stars assistant coach Benjamin Nyangweso is confident
his side can finish in the top five this season following their excellent form
in the Kenyan Premier League.
The Soldiers are currently on a 10-match unbeaten run,
having won four and drawn six since they last tasted defeat, which was against
defending champions and KPL leaders Gor Mahia way back in April.
That run has left Stars in seventh in the standings and with
a game in hand over the four teams directly above them, and Nyangweso is
confident of the 2010 league champions' chances in the second half of the
"The players are working hard and everyone is
performing well in the matches. It has as well become hard for us to choose a
starting team and it is something good for us coaches," he said.
"It is encouraging to see players giving their all both
in training and on the pitch.
"I believe we can finish within the top five and
improve last year's performance and probably even do better. We are in good
shape and on the ascendancy."
Next up is the visit of Muhoroni Youth on Friday, and
although they sit some four places and fives points behind Stars, Nyangweso is
taking nothing for granted.
He added: "Muhoroni is a good team and they have been
picking good results and it will not be an easy match. We cannot underrate them
and we will give it our best."
