Kariobangi Sharks midfielder Patilla Omotto says Friday’s 1-0 win over Kakamega Homeboyz has placed them firmly on the path to challenging for the Betking Premier League (BPL) title this season.
Omotto who scored the lone goal that sunk the Kakamega side said he was sure of scoring immediately he won the ball in his area.
“It was a very important win for us against a team that has had more victories over us in the last eight meetings. It has cemented our title credentials considering that if you want to be champions, the only option is to win your matches,” he said.
Regarding the goal, he added:”Once I won the ball i noticed there was an empty space and I put it there. I had earlier noticed the space and was sure if I got the ball, I would score.”
He admitted to struggling with match fitness and promised a better performance in the next fixture.
“There was a lot of pressure coming into this match and team-work won it for us.”
