Tusker FC is set to take on Wazito FC in the opening fixture of Matchday 18 of the 20/21 BetKing Premier League (BPL) on Friday and ahead of the game, defender Rodgers Aloro has shared that he believes The Brewers can do the double over their opponents.
League leaders Tusker defeated Wazito by a solitary goal in their first meeting of the season in early February with the win part of a seven game winning streak for Robert Matano’s men that saw them ascend to the league’s summit.
Though they have faltered in recent times to see their hefty lead reduced to just one point, Aloro still believes the experience within the squad will see them maneuver through this difficult patch.
In a video posted by Tusker online, Aloro said: “Our recent blip does bring pressure on the team but we believe that with the strong mentality that we have as a team plus we’ve been there at the top of the table for a while, I think we have what it takes to handle this kind of pressure.
“We are motivated (heading into the Wazito game) because we defeated them in the first-leg game and we believe that we can do it again. We just need to be more calmer in front of goal, add more impetus in our speed when we attack and we shall overcome,” he said.
Tusker have won just one of their last four games and sit top with 34 points.
