Isibania host Palos in Nyanza NSL derby

Isibania FC will look to put the blow of losing to City Stars last weekend behind them and start a key run of matches with a win when they entertain Palos at Awendo Green Stadium on Saturday.

Isibania looked to have laid down a marker in terms of performance this season, first leg and resumed the second leg with a positive note, beating FC Talanta 1-0 courtesy of high flying Clinton Omondi’s strike.

However, last weekend’s contested 2-1 defeat to City Stars, was a blow to their league’s prospects but coach Dan Musta is hoping to get their league campaign back and running.

“It was a disappointing outing, we lost unfairly but that is now in the past and we are up to the task and our main aim is to bounce back with a win against Palos. Preparation are going on well apart from the financial constraints,” said coach Dan Musta.

Palos come to this match on the back of a 2-1 win over Administrative Police and are sitting above Isibania on seventh position with 26 points while Isibania is 10th placed with 24 points but coach Musta is determined to give a good account of themselves in the match.

“It is a good match against Palos. They are a good side, doing well in the league and it is always enjoyable to come up against the best, so, no underrating,” said coach Musta, adding, “The desire to perform is  burning. That is how you progress. They are a team built to play, keep the ball and attack. It will be up to us to respond, to stay compact and try to come away with a result,” concluded coach Musta.

Isibania has come out strongly pointing fingers at the manner and level of which their match against City Stars over the weekend was handled and officiated.
