Newly appointed Nairobi City Stars coach Bye Wadda who took over on a temporary basis from Gideon Ochieng is convinced that the remaining five matches of the season are enough to guarantee his team survival in the top flight.
The Kawangware side is in 14th place and with four points above the drop zone and Wadda admits the situation the team is in is a bit tight but he keeps the belief that survival will be assured come November.
With the team’s direct opponents yet to play most of the top placed teams, Wadda is counting on the results in the matches to go in City Stars’ favour.
-The situation is a little bit tight but I am under no pressure at all. I have enough hands on experienced at this level so I am assured of survival.
-We are four points to the better – that is already a plus for us and I hope we win on Sunday so as to better our advantage. Our direct opponents in the survival fight are also yet to play with most of the top five teams and I can only hope the results favour us.
-However, I don’t want my players to feel like we depend on other teams’ results, we have to curve our own destiny by winning our matches, he told futaa.com.
City Stars have gone nine matches without a win. The team’s last win was against Thika United in the 16th round of league matches.
