High riding MSC ready for tough tackling Sharks

Mombasa Sports Club will have to be at their best when facing tough tackling at the City Park stadium this afternoon.

MSC had to change their style of play against Western Jaguars in the 2-1 victory on Saturday and they will be looking at those match results for inspiration as they seek to make 100% out of their trip to Nairobi. Club captain George Olang noted they will have to approach the match cautiously if they are to get something from the tricky Sunday afternoon encounter.

He admitted they had to resort to the traditional long ball style of play to break the Jaguars resilient back line, a strategy that worked to their advantage.

“Jaguars controlled the first half but we managed to get our way round in the second half. We had to throw more players forward in search for goals. Once we got the we got firmly into the match,” noted the Captain.

Olang talked of how important the victory was which elevated them to four points from two matches same with Joint leaders Wazalendo and champions Nairobi Simba.

“Last week we played to a disappointing barren draw with Mvita , despite being a derby we usually emerge triumphant.  Coming from behind to win the match yesterday was an incredible reward.” He added.

Looking forward to the match against Sharks, the skipper maintains they will be out to enjoy themselves and pick all points.

“The most important thing is to play our match and enjoy our playing style without pressurizing  ourselves. We are expecting a tough match given our opponents have great players. All in all we shall take the match as it comes.” He concluded.
