Kenyan second tier side Nzoia Sugar is setting an ambitious target to feature in the 2017 CAF Confederations Cup and to get there the team will have to negotiate its way to winning the GOtv Shield, which head coach Bernard Mwalala believes is a test his charges can pass.
Standing in their way to GOtv Shield glory and potential continental appearance, is the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) champion Gor Mahia whom they face in the third round of the competition at the Mumias Sports Complex on Sunday 28 August.
Mwalala led his team to dump out league giants Tusker in the 2015 edition and he is once again calling on the giant killing instinct as he leads his team against Gor Mahia after a fruitful season in the National Super League (NSL).
“We know it will be a tough match but we are determined to go all the way because through this tournament we know we can get the chance to represent the country in the Confederations Cup and that is a big motivation to us and the players.
“We also want to improve on how we performed in the tournament last season and after a good season so far, I am confident we can do well; we will give our best,” he said.
