Wazito defender Johnstone Omurwa says Sofapaka should not be underrated despite their dismal start to the season.
The two sides play each other on Sunday as the top league resumes after a four week suspension.
Omurwa said their opponents are always considered favorites given their pedigree.
“We cannot underrate them at all. The bad start could have been due to the fact that most of their players are new and had not got used to play each other and needed time to jell,” he said.
“Sofapaka are always a big team whichever way you look at it and we expect a tough game against them on Sunday.”
He admitted that the league stoppage had made a big impact on teams and will take long for them to get back to their top form.
“It has been difficult for all the teams staying away from training and in my assessment it could take long for us to hit back our previous form but the advantage is that everyone is affected,” added Omurwa
