Sofapaka boss John Baraza is keen to send the Kenyan Premier League title race and his target is to get maximum points against Gor Mahia on Sunday in Kisumu.
Batoto Ba Mungu have 56 points and a win in Kisumu means they will be just four points behind Gor Mahia FC.
“It was such a good motivation for us to win because it keeps us in the right frame ahead of the huge match against Gor on Sunday. It will be very vital for us to ick points and catch up because getting three points against your direct rival is a huge advantage,” Baraza told Sofapaka media.
‘We want to take the race to the last day of the season and winning against Gor on Sunday will be very crucial for us,” added the coach.
Looking back at the win over Stima, Baraza was full of praise for the players for their attitude especially after the heartbreaking 2-2 draw against Tusker last Sunday.
“After the last game which we felt was like a loss, the boys had some sort of anger to get back on the pitch and win and they showed that because they had vowed to get all the three points. It was a good performance and everyone played his part,” Baraza said.
