We have to work extra hard to maintain the standards we have already set. Everybody is ready, the game is like any other game’, Matano said.
Midfielder Boniface Muchiri says he’s ready to produce goods after months out with injury.
‘’I feel like I have recovered a great deal. I can now run, pass and all that. I am grateful for the mental strength I have gained especially from the coach who has continued to push me to regaining my earlier good form’’, Muchiri remarked.
