Bandari are serious title contenders, says Mwalala
This is Bandari's year-Mwalala
Bandari FC head coach Bernard Mwalala has warned that his side should be taken as a serious title contender and has vowed the side will work hard to achieve the target and be well placed to challenge for their first ever league crown.
Bandari have started the season on a high beating Gor Mahia 2-1 at home and replicating the same result beating Sofapaka away from home in Machakos last Sunday.
“I said this before the season started that we will be among the teams fighting for a title. We will look at the first five games and see how things are then we can confidently state our targets. But as at now, that is what we want to achieve. We have to be among the contenders,” Mwalala noted.
He added; “Many people might look at us as underdogs but we will prove our worth. We have to work hard and have the right mental strength.”
Mwalala was impressed with the attitude of his side coming from a goal down to win 2-1 against Sofapaka and hopes they can replicate the same result moving forward.
“We knew it was going to be a very tough game, even tougher than Gor Mahia because Sofapaka have a very good team and they had a good pre-season and it proved when we played. But we did well to come from a goal down, that showed a lot od fighting spirit from the players,” the tactician stated.
