Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Premier League side Bandari FC is on a fine run since the sacking of Rwandan coach Andre Casa Mbungo slightly over a month ago.
The Mombasa based outfit has played five games since Mbungo’s departure but is yet to taste defeat, drawing the first two and winning the last three.
Interim head coach Anthony ‘Modo’ Kimani who was Mbungo’s assistant at Mbaraki has been in charge of the five games and shed light on what has been key in their recent run.
According to Kimani, the players were low in confidence and his trump card has been to instill confidence and belief in them, which has indeed turned around the results.
“The team was lacking confidence and believe that was the first thing I instilled, I reminded them of their quality and the position a big club like Bandari are in and the importance of getting back to where we belong and that inspired the good form,” Kimani said.
The former AFC Leopards tactician has promised fans to expect more from the team when the international break ends and the league resumes this weekend.
The Dockers will be away to Nairobi City Stars and despite having won the first leg 1-0 at the Mbaraki Sports Club under him, Kimani is wary of Simba wa Nairobi.
“They (City Stars) are one of the tough teams to beat in the league at the moment, we will not get carried away by the first leg results, we will have to be at our best in every department for us to get the maximum points from them,” he said.
Bandari are sixth on the FKF Premier League log with 31 points, 23 games into the season.
