KENYA CUP

Impala under no pressure ahead of Machine clash

After three rounds of unbeaten run in Kenya Cup 2018/19, Impala Saracens boss Frank Ndong says they are calm since they are taking each match at a time.
The side managed to hold off Blad 18-15, Nakuru 26-22 and Strathmore 16-9 in round one, two and three respectively and they sit third on the Kenya Cup log with 13 points.
They face Mean Machine who have registered mixed results in the opening three games and when asked if they are under pressure being one of the unbeaten sides in the league,  Ndong said they are under no pressure and even though he understands the threat that Machine will pose his side will be targetting maximum points from the clash
‘No, we are not under because we will be taking one game at a time.  We are focused on the Machine game and after it, we will think of the Kabras match. We need to be clinical in execution since the chances are few and a rare. We need to adjust our set pieces and we are going for five points,’ he said.
Giving remarks on Impala Saracens 16-9 win over Strathmore Leos in a cagey match played at the Impala club, Ndong said they didn’t expect it to be a hard nut to crack and attributed to improper decision making to the struggles
‘It was more difficult than we expected. We were not clinical enough, decision making was wanting and some basic skills like going for posts was not well executed,’ he concluded.
Impala will take on Mean Machine, who will be in the saddle for a win after losing the varsity derby 32-19 to Blak Blad,.
