KENYA : KCB coach wary of Coop Bank threat

Updated on 04/12/12 | By BRIAN AYIEKO
After beating arch rivals and 2011 defending champions Co-op Bank, KCB Lions coach Morris Shitsama has admitted that they face a huge task when the two teams meet for game two on Saturday.
The Lions defeated Co-op Bank 67-59 at the Nyayo Gymnasium and a second win will guarantee the team direct ticket into the finals to face either USIU Tigers or KPA.
Speaking to michezoafrika.com, Shitsama was wary of Co-op Bank but reaffirmed that his side would be ready for the challenge,
“Co-op will not give in especially after last weekend’s loss and they will want the win but that is the same situation with us. The tie is very crucial for us and if we win it nothing will be stopping us from winning the league since both KPA and USIU do not pose much threat so we will give our best.”
Co-op Bank was rather off compared to their usual style of play in the encounter and Shitsama says this can happen to anybody, “you know the matches are sometimes like a game of cards, you might have prepared well but it also depends how you wake up on the match day. You may not just be able to execute your preparations and it can happen to any team.”
According to Shitsama, the Lions will work to improve on their defence before the two teams meet for the clash that will be sure to produce fireworks.
