Kakamega Homeboyz FC will use the lengthy league break to sharpen up so as to stay in good form, this is according to coach Nicholas Muyoti who has so far steered the side to four wins in their last five matches.
Homeboyz, who are among the premier league clubs that did not register for this year’s Cup competition, are out of action until mid of this month, their last fixture having been a 3-1 demolition of Posta Rangers in Nairobi. With the season already having experienced a few breaks due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Muyoti has mastered the art of staying in shape.
”We have to stay in shape and that’s why we cannot go on a break despite being out of action for long,” he says.
”We’ve had breaks before and maybe handled things differently then so now we know better. We will keep on training as if we are in action this weekend”
Homeboyz were runners up during last season’s premier league that was ended due to the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic and had a poor start to the new season. Muyoti’s men have however, proved their mettle by bouncing back and rising to the top half of the BetKing Premier League table standings. He attributes this to constant work.
”We had to work harder. The first stoppage in the league greatly affected us and there was pressure too. With the second break, we knew what to do and didn’t sleep a day. It’s all been hard work,” he adds.
Homeboyz would have returned to action mid this month when the league resumes but their scheduled opponents Zoo FC, are currently suspended. This means week more for the Kakamega side on the break.
