As the 2018/19 Kenyan Premier League season draws to a close, Posta Rangers head coach John Kamau hopes the good turn for his team can extend to the final match of the campaign as the side looks to rise away from the KPL red zone.
The win over Ulinzi Stars on Thursday 9 May at Afraha Stadium was a crucial one to Rangers’ ambitions for the season, and Kamau was full of praise for his charges even as he called on them not to relent, after picking four points in the last two matches.
The coach noted that the low placing on the league standings is not a clear reflection of the quality in the team, blaming it on easy concession and wastefulness in attack.
“One thing I need to say is that we don’t deserve to be where we are; when you look at the team and the way we are playing we don’t deserve to be there. We have been creating chances but unfortunately we have not been scoring then conceding simple goals
“Going to the next match, the win over Ulinzi Stars gives us a platform to build on. I challenged them to play for the badge and this is the response I wanted and I hope we can continue that way,” he said.
Posta Rangers could move further closer to safety on Sunday 12 May when they take on relegation threatened Vihiga United in one of the Round 30 matches listed for the day.
