Despite quite a sorry run in the current Kenya Cup campaign, Western Bulls head coach Solomon Obiero believes that wins in their last two remaining matches will help them keep their top league status.

This is after they were defeated 28-16 over the weekend by another struggling side, Kenya Harlequins.

Speaking exclusively to Citizen Digital after the clash, Obiero who doubles up as a coach and captain conceded the loss was a blow in their quest to escape the axe but insisted all is not lost.

“We started the game slowly thus we were unable to contain our opponents. By the time we got into the game in a way we could recover, Quins had already won the match.

“We’re not out yet, we still have two matches to play towards the end of the season which could make all the difference,” said Obiero.

Bulls will take on Homeboyz and Top Fry Nakuru in their last two matches, that Obiero wants his charges to give their all to ensure a sweet ending.

The western based team is in the relegation zone sitting 11th with 13 points, five points behind 10th placed Blak Blad and eight points ahead of last placed Kisumu RFC.

Obiero knows why their season-enders will be a demanding affair, consequently demanding total concentration in preparation for them.

“We have it in our minds that our opponents are fighting for playoff tickets, making it even more interesting as they will have to give it their all. We will have to be very strong mentally and get everything right…” Obiero narrated.

Bulls, together with Kisumu RFC, were promoted this season after finishing top and number two respectively in the KRU Championship last season.
