Johnstone Omurwa believes Wazito FC’s one-all draw against Kakamega Homeboyz in Bukhungu last weekend will instill confidence in the team ahead of their forthcoming assignments.
Derrick Otanga’s stoppage-time strike from the spot halted the team’s seven-match losing streak in the league and Omurwa who skippered the team on Sunday says the point earned in Kakamega will boost the squad’s belief.
“It’s definitely a huge confidence boost for everyone after such a long poor run. Getting a point against a Homeboyz, a side that had won its last four games and are among the title contenders is commendable,” the defender said.
Omurwa also praised the team’s fighting spirit throughout the game. He states that even going down early in the second half did not deter the team’s resolve not to lose the match.
“The fighting spirit was very good, even when trailing the boys kept fighting, no one in the team wanted to lose. We still believed that we could get something out of the match and luckily it came in the last minute of the game, it’s the least we deserved,” he added.

“I think was born a leader and a chance to skipper the team is one that I cherish. Hopefully, I can lead the team to a couple of wins in our next few assignments,” he concluded.
Wazito play their next match at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos against high flying Western Stima on Saturday.
