FKFPL Peter Ogechi makes vow to Shabana fans ahead of Ulinzi Stars clash

Festus Chuma 12:31 - 27.10.2023

Shabana FC captain Peter Ogechi, along with his teammates, are gearing up for a crucial match against Ulinzi Stars to be played in Nairobi this weekend.

Shabana FC captain Peter Ogechi has issued a resounding promise to fans and teammates alike ahead of this weekend's clash against Ulinzi Stars.

The scene for this gripping football spectacle is the Ulinzi Sports Complex, where Tore Bobe will be fervently chasing their second victory of the season.

Thus far, their journey has seen them vanquish Tusker FC with a 1-0 win, while their recent encounter with Nairobi City Stars ended in a hard-fought 2-2 draw.

Nevertheless, Ogechi radiates optimism for the upcoming away match, marking their eighth outing this season.

"We had a game last weekend where we played to a draw, and we felt that we could have earned maximum points, but we went home with just one point," he said.

"Morale is high, and everyone is excited ahead of the upcoming clash. We are confident that we will secure maximum points. I encourage the fans to come in large numbers, as their support motivates us to win. This Sunday, they should flock to the stadium and rally behind us," he added.

Shabana has faced unique challenges this season, notably the relocation of their home matches from Kisii's Simeon Nyachae Stadium to Homa Bay's Raila Odinga Stadium due to renovation work.

"Playing away from home has not adversely affected us," Ogechi emphasized. "If you look at the last season in the NSL, we played many matches outside Kisii. I believe it comes down to the mindset and attitude of the players, and I'm confident that we will achieve positive results."

As they stand, Shabana FC has accrued seven points from seven matches, securing the 13th position on the league table.

Their forthcoming clash against Ulinzi Stars, who share their point tally but with a distinct goal difference, is poised to be a crucial turning point in their season.

Shabana's journey this season has epitomized resilience and tenacity in the face of adversity. With their ardent supporters watching with bated breath, as the team has not merely endured the challenges but has grown and evolved with each game.
