KCB head coach Curtis Olago has said that player combination, set piece and defensive drills have been the key emphasis as they gear up for their last game of the year against Top Fry Nakuru this weekend.

The defending champions reclaimed their top position in the Kenya Cup log with a 70-16 humiliation of University side, Blak Blad, at the Ruaraka grounds at the weekend.

Olago was however quick to point out the need to work on their mistakes observed during their weekend’s convincing win.

“We did well against Blak Blad; we put into practice our set pieces and line of defence. Our attack line improved compared to the game against Kisii hence the results over the weekend,” Olago told Citizen Digital.

The KCB tactician has at the same time warned against complacency, adding that his charges must polish their grey areas  before they collide with Top Fry Nakuru this Saturday.

“Nakuru is a good side and our games are always worth looking forward to. We are focused on working on a few mistakes ahead of the end year game; hopefully we will get an impressive result as a Christmas present,” Olago charged.

Meanwhile, Impala Saracens chairman Bill Githinji has come out gun blazing in support of his team after their 21-39 loss to Menengai Homeboyz.

“This loss means we have to work harder; there is still a lot that needs to be done. Our structure and discipline have to be looked at again, Homeboyz could have been seeded first in this match, it is a loss we could be expected to accommodate, but we have to change how we execute.”

Githinji however assured the “Sarries” fans that they will bounce back in their end-of-year game against Nondescripts who are psyched up after their 64-5 thrashing of Mombasa RFC.

“We still have 8 more games, we will come back stronger against Nondescripts. We need to have it all together now and show it against Nondies next weekend,”Githinji added.

In a separate interview with Citizen Digital, Impala Saracens head coach, Frank Ndong, said he was unperturbed  with the loss, noting that they will bounce back stronger.

“We seemed to have a plan whenever we had possession, and camped on their 22- yard for some time, that was commendable, but we still need to work on our composure and discipline issues as we head to the Nondescripts game.”
