Wazito FC head coach Fred Ambani says they are ready to dig in for their first Kenyan Premier League victory when they host AFC Leopards at the Bukhungu Stadium on Saturday.

Wazito made big signings during the transfer window but have been sub-par on the pitch, drawing 1-1 with Nzoia Sugar in their season-opening clash and drew 0-0 last weekend at Western Stima.

But Ambani says his charges are ready to show their championship material against Leopards who are enduring an equally disappointing start to the season, having just one point to show from their opening two games.

“We still have the league title as our main goal this season and we are hoping to start winning on Saturday despite registering draws in the first two matches. We have prepared well for the game and my boys are thirsty to win,” Ambani said.

The former Leopards striker has refuted claims that the technical bench is under pressure to perform.

“Nothing like being under pressure, two draws is an indication that the boys can now win the next match and stay hopeful of winning the league instead of just finishing in a respectable position,” he added.

Wazito FC captain Dan Owino has echoed the sentiments of his coach declaring that this Saturday will be a turning point for the money spenders.

“I think according to our training this week I can say that we are ready to face our opponents.

“Since the league started we have not won any match but I believe we are going to collect our first maximum points this weekend this season.”

Wazito is keen to apply an attacking style of play different from how they have been playing in their first two matches.

“Against AFC Leopards I think we are going to attack more and I’m confident we are going for a win,” Owino added.
