Bandari caretaker coach Twahir Muhiddin is optimistic that his charges will give the necessary response when KPL action resumes this weekend when they travel to Afraha Stadium in Nakuru to face defending champions Gor Mahia.

Muhiddin who formerly coached Harambee Stars will be making his KPL return on Saturday and believes his squad needed to regain confidence after a false start to the league.

A veteran in the dugout, Muhiddin is loved and detested in equal measure borrowing from his stint with the Stars  but is expected to get warm embrace from the club fan base as he tries to steady the shaky Bandari ship.

The Dockers have known no joy this term falling off the title race in the wake of eight loses, three draws and five wins and he’ll hope that his magic and vast knowledge of the team will help get the Mombasa boys roaring again.

“Gor Mahia game is just a normal game and we hope for the best as the boys have also regained their fighting spirit,” said Muhiddin.

He added, “We are playing a friendly today against Omax to try and replicate what we have been training for the last one week.”

Whether the last two weeks workouts in which he’s been hard at trying to pass across his philosophy will yield results remain to be seen but the match in Nakuru should provide some fireworks.

He has at the same time confirmed that the club will not make any other signing after snapping up John Mwita from Sony Sugar.

“We are not going for anyone; maybe next season because so far the squad is well packed to face any opponent,” he added.

Bandari who sit at position eleven on the KPL log with 18 points lost the first leg at their Mbaraki backyard 2-0 and will be out to inflict revenge.
