Kabras Head Coach Mzingaye Nyathi believes his neighbours MMUST will be able to ‘surprise people’ in the top tier.
The tactician made his Kenya Cup debut by guiding the Sugarmen to a convincing 56-0 win over MMUST in the first match of the 2021 Kenya Cup season. His side dominated the game forcing their neighbours to stay on backfoot in the better part of the match played at Kakamega Showground last Saturday.
Despite his side’s dominance, Mzingaye holds that the newbies are ‘not a bad side at all’ and has predicted they can cause upsets later in the season.
“To be honest, if you look at what MMUST produced was quite impressive, bearing in mind they qualified for Kenya Cup a fortnight ago,” Mzingaye told the Scrummage.
“I know they will be panicking a little bit about preparation time but what we saw as they played against us was wonderful set-pieces and they seemed to contest very well. They have very good boys in the backline with some good pace,” he added.
“If the coaches work the systems correctly, keep encouraging the boys, I think MMUST will be able to surprise one or two people. It is not a bad side at all,” he concluded.
MMUST travel to Nakuru to play former Kenya Cup Champions Nakuru in the second match of the season.
