Kariobangi Sharks looking to get their Shield Cup groove back
Former Shield Cup Champions Kariobangi Sharks looking to win back the title they lost to Bandari last season
Kariobangi Sharks have always played till the semi-finals since their first ever involvement in the Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Shield Cup and are looking to follow the same script this year. Sharks who won their first ever Cup title in 2018 lost it to Bandari last year, but will look to get their title back this year.
Coach William Muluya remains optimistic his side can vie for the crown. They lost in the semis in their first attempt at the title, lost in the final in their second and won in their third in 2018.
“The players have sufficiently trained and I believe they are more than capable to participate in the knockout stages of the FKF cup on Sunday and attain a positive result,” said the tactician.
Sharks face lower tier side Kenpoly in the round of 32 on Sunday at Kasarani and are confident of getting a way into the round of 16.
Muluya’s side will be boosted in confidence especially after finding their winning feet last weekend, beating high flying KCB 1-0 in a leauge fixture in Machakos.
