Kenya Harlequins head coach Dominique Habimana says his charges have to step up and get results in their upcoming match against Impala Saracens as the Kenya Cup enters round seven this weekend.

Quins narrowly lost 13-15 against Mwamba over the weekend, and according to the former Simba assistant coach, his team has to take their chances in the upcoming fixtures.

“Clearly we have to step up our game because a narrow loss is still a loss, so we need to put away the game when we’ve got the opportunity and take our chances whenever they present themselves; that’s what we need to do against Impala this weekend,” explained Habimana.

Habimana says he has to access his players before making any changes to his current squad.

“We’ll see how training goes from today onwards and make sure that injuries are sorted on time to have a strong side to face Impala,” he added.

The Ngong road outfit is ninth on the log with seven points something that Habimana says must change starting this weekend against Impala where he expects his side to be victorious.

“It’s a terrible results kind of performance that’s why we need to step up our game; basically there is no other choice of improving our performance,” added Habimana.

“We’ve to put away games whenever the opportunity presents itself and earn points to help us rise to a playoff position,” he added.

Quins finished third last season with 53 points, 21 behind table-toppers Kabras Sugar who maintained their lead of the table thanks to a 19-6 win against defending champions KCB RFC to move four points at the top of the log with 29 points.
