Posta Rangers are keen to finish their Kenyan Premier League (KPL) season on a high having gone from genuine contenders to hangers-on in the title run-in.

Posta were seen as potential candidates to challenge for the KPL honours this season thanks to their impressive start but too many draws left their ambitions shattered.

At some phase of the campaign, Posta went nine consecutive matches without a win to fall off the race, but the recent resurgence has got coach Sammy ‘Pamzo’ Omollo purring.

The tactician now wants his charges to sweep all nine points from the remaining three matches.

“We played well against a strong side (Kakamega Homeboyz), and that tells a lot about our mentality.

“We started the season very strongly, and we have to finish in a similar style. We will build on this win as we go to face Bandari away to Mombasa,” Pamzo told after guiding his charges in Wednesday’s 1-0 win over Homeboyz in Narok.

Pamzo’s men face a Bandari FC side coming from the back of a 6-2 mauling and are riding high in confidence.

But the tactician warned the Coastal based team to expect a tougher challenge when the two clash.

“They are a good team but we cannot reflect much on their win over Muhoroni.

“Honestly, Muhoroni can be justifiably termed a weak team. They have lost the spirit and zeal they had at the start of the season,” Pamzo stated.

Posta who are placed fourth on the KPL log next tackle Mathare United and Western Stima before calling it a season.

Of the three, Pamzo says the Mathare will be the hardest nut to crack as the 2008 champions continue to fight relegation.

Meanwhile, Sunday’s clash between Gor Mahia FC and Zoo FC has been moved from the Kericho Green Stadium to Nakuru’s Afraha Stadium owing to security concerns emanating from the current political unrest.

 

According to KPL management, Kericho OCPD recommended the change in venue.

In other matches on the same day, Homeboyz lock horns with Chemelil Sugar, Kariobangi Sharks host Muhoroni as Mathare welcome Nzoia United.

Sony Sugar will host Sofapaka, Stima visit Ulinzi Stars, Thika United travel to Ruaraka to play holders Tusker FC as Nakumatt FC and AFC Leopards complete the round 32 fixtures list.
