Ahead of their midweek clash against Sony Sugar, Modern Coast Rangers head coach Muhammed Mchule expects his charges to stage a better show on Wednesday when they face Sony Sugar following their 3-3 stalemate against Kisumu All-Stars last weekend.

Mchule whose team rose to number eight on the National Super League (NSL) after their weekend exploits say his team must improve on their concentration after surrendering a 3-1 lead in the closing stages of Sunday thriller.

“We played a very experienced team that previously played in the topflight. You can afford to be complacent in any instance because they can punish you.

“In our next game, we have to manage our advantage better and also improve our focus. That is the only way we can start winning again.”

They will face a Sony side that is struggling for consistency having won only two of their opening nine games. The Awendo Green Stadium based side has lost three times with their other four matches having ended all square.

Elsewhere Shabana team manager Elijah Sani expects a contender’s response when his side travel to Soy United following their disappointing defeat by league leaders Kenya Police on Saturday.

Sani says the team has to find a way of grinding out results even when they are having bad games.

The ‘Glamor Boys’ saw their six-game unbeaten run come to a grinding halt at the Kericho Green Stadium after they lost 2-1 to league leaders Kenya Police following a dull display more so their striking department.

“In as much as we can complain about the referee’s performance and the questionable calls that he made; we also feel responsible for the loss because we failed to make the most of the chances that we created in the first half.”

“I expect the boys to react quickly and positively to prevent falling off the track,” he told Citizen Digital.
