The Premier League-winning coach has highlighted what they need to do to beat K’Ogalo.

Tusker FC head coach Robert Matano has revealed his pressing concern ahead of their Football Kenya Federation Premier League (FKFPL) title decider match against Gor Mahia.

The Brewers will host their fiercest rivals, K'Ogalo at Nyayo Stadium on Sunday, and Matano has called on his players to be clinical in front of goal.

"We will need to be clinical in front of the goal," Matano said. "We have not been putting away the many chances we create.

"It is something I have told my players to work on, especially against Gor Mahia. Any chance needs to be converted into goals; only that way can we get a positive result."

The former Ulinzi Stars head coach has pointed out why a win against K’Ogalo will be crucial for his charges.

"We are taking it one game at a time, but a win against Gor Mahia will bring us closer to our dream of winning a double, it is my wish to get the two trophies, and that is what we are fighting for," added Matano.

"It will not be an easy game; Gor Mahia are coming from losing a derby [against AFC Leopards], and they know defeat will dent their hopes of winning the title, so I anticipate a close game."

This match is seen as a potential title decider given that both sides are separated by a point. Tusker are on 64 points, one above second-placed Gor Mahia, and both have played the same number of games.

The league's reigning champions are the busiest side so far in the season, as they are also focused on winning the FKF Cup.

They will play Premier League rivals Kakamega Homeboyz in the final game of the domestic cup.
