Matano vows to guide Ingwe to shield title

first_img0Shares0000AFC Leopards head coach Robert Matano feeds instructions to midfielder Harun Nyakha during his side’s Kenyan Premier League clash against Kariobangi Sharks on October 7, 2017. PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaNAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 9 – AFC Leopards boss Robert Matano is not mincing his words ahead of October 20’s GOtv Shield final against Kariobangi Sharks in Nairobi, laying it bare that he will be throwing his entire arsenal to ensure Ingwe finish the season with some respect.The two teams faced each other on Saturday in Machakos in a Kenyan Premier League match, a dress rehearsal for their titanic battle on Mashujaa Day, but it was a tad less inspiring. Matano though warns the script will be different for the final. “We are going all out for it (GOtv Shield). AFC is a big team and we cannot finish the season without a trophy. I am a winner and I am going there to win. When you get to the final, the aim is only one and we will go all out for it,” the experienced tactician told Capital Sport.AFC Leopards last won the Shield title in 2013 with James Nandwa and this year, they look determined to bag another piece of silverware especially in a season where they have struggled to impress with their fans seemingly dejected if stadium attendance is anything to go by.Matano admits it will not be a walk in the park against Sharks but reckons tactically, he will have done his homework right to tailor his side well for a win.The tactician is however worried of the piling injuries list with Vincent Oburu and Aziz Okaka having been withdrawn in Saturday’s match due to hamstring strains. Ugandan Keziron Kizito as well as defenders Marcus Abwao and Joshua Mawira are already sidelined.AFC Leopards striker Vincent Oburu is sandwicthed between teammate Ian Otieno and Kariobangi Sharks duo of Sven Yidah and Elli Asieche during a Kenyan Premier League clash on October 7, 2017. PHOTO/Raymond Makhaya“It is a big headache for us because those are important players in the squad and unlike other teams, I don’t have a big squad to pick players from. It is tougher because we have to play league matches in a very small period of time which makes recovery even more difficult,” the tactician lamented.Meanwhile, Kariobangi Sharks boss William Muluya has vowed to ensure the KPL newbies turn the tables on the bigwigs, saying playing them on Saturday opened up his eyes on what he should do to get round them in the Shield final.“The team will most likely remain the same and the tactics might not change match. At least I know how best I will approach that game and I know if we do everything correct, we will come out winners. It will be tough because we have to respect the fact that they are a big team,” Muluya noted.Kariobangi Sharks head coach William Muluya instructs midfielder Ibrahim Kitawi during a Kenyan Premier League clash on October 7, 2017. PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaSharks have had a tremendous outing in their maiden appearance in top flight football and the GOtv Shield final berth is a cherry on top of their cake that has seen them rise to sixth in the league standings.“If there was a scale higher than 10, then I would give my team. I think they have been exceptional,” the tactician said, heaping praise on the performance of his players.Sharks are also confronted with a tough run of fixtures before the Shield final and barely three days after playing AFC in Machakos face defending KPL champions Tusker FC in Ruaraka on Wednesday then host Chemelil Sugar on Saturday at Kasarani.Muluya has hinted he will be forced to rotate his squad heavily in their league matches to curtail the effects of fatigue and ensure he fields his strongest squad in the Shield final.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Crunch time for survival chasing KPL sides

first_img0Shares0000Thirsty for the title: Posta Rangers head coach Sammy Omollo has warned that his team is a strong title contender.NAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 5 – Vihiga United, Chemelil Sugar, Nzoia Sugar, Nakumatt and Posta Rangers find themselves in the deep end of the Kenyan Premier League survival fight when the 2018 season culminates on Sunday.Thika United and Wazito FC have already been officially relegated from the top tier and there will be one more team who will sit on the judgement seat, but in the play-off with the third placed team from the National Super League. Vihiga, Chemelil and Nzoia are all on 38 points while Nakumatt and Posta are on 37 with the mailmen currently occupying the play-off slot, differentiated from Nakumatt on goal difference.The biggest battle will be at the Ruaraka Complex where Nzoia takes on Nakumatt and if Posta win, whoever loses between the two will drop to the zone. A draw will see Nakumatt drop down while Vihiga will be safe.-Cup finalVihiga United head coach Mike Mururi gives instructions during a past kenyan premier League match. Photo/COURTESYVihiga head coach Mike Mururi has described their clash against Nakumatt as a ‘Cup final’ and has told his team to play the game of their lives to remain in the top tier.“This is all about their lives right now. We face a very tough Nakumatt side with tactical and technical players and we need to give our best for that game. We cannot afford to relax from the first to last minute. Looking at the team in training this week, I am confident we are in the right frame to win,” Mururi said.Vihiga have not lost in their last four games, winning two including against champions Gor Mahia and drawing the other two. Their last meeting with Nakumatt ended in a barren draw at the Mumias Complex.They come up against a Nakumatt side that has not won over the last five games losing three and drawing two, with sources intimating that the poor performance has been down to financial issues with the taps of the new owner said to have run dry.But, the side will be looking to avoid the chop and a win at home, on a ground that has more often than not favored them will be a huge reprieve.-Posta in hot soupPosta Rangers meanwhile look more in hot soup as a loss against Homeboyz will confirm them as the team to take the play-off. Head coach Sammy Omollo has admitted that his side is in trouble, but has called on the players to step up, just for this one time.Posta Rangers head coach Sammy ‘Pamzo’ Omollo. Photo/RAYMOND MAKHAYA“We have to fight with our all now because the danger of relegation is real. We just have to win; no two ways about it,” Omollo said after his side’s 2-0 loss against Sony Sugar last weekend.Posta are on a run of four losses on the trot and have to win at all costs. On paper, they will be confident as they have only lost once to Homeboyz over their last five meetings, winning two and drawing the other two.The last meeting between them ended 2-0 in favor of the mailmen in Nairobi.Meanwhile, a resurgent Chemelil will look to complete the survival job playing against Kariobangi Sharks in Nairobi, taking on a side that has not tasted f=defeat since August 19.Across all competitions, Sharks have won six games and drawn two and will come into the tie high in confidence especially as they seek a top five finish.Another small motivation pushing the Sharks side will come in through striker Eric Kapaito who is looking to seal the golden boot with at least a goal as he is currently joint top with Jacques Tuyisenge and Elvis Rupia all on 15.KPL weekend fixturesAFC Leopards vs Nzoia Sugar FC – 3PM – Machakos,  Bandari vs Thika United – 3PM – Mombasa, Kakamega Homeboyz vs Posta Rangers – 3PM – Mumias, Kariobangi Sharks vs Chemelil Sugar FC – 3PM – Camp Toyoyo, Mathare United vs Ulinzi Stars – 3PM – Kasarani, Nakumatt FC vs Vihiga United – 3PM – Ruaraka, Sony Sugar FC vs Wazito FC – 3PM – Awendo, Tusker FC vs Gor Mahia – 3PM – Thika Zoo Kericho vs Sofapaka – 3PM – Kericho0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Insurer urged to cover girl’s surgery

first_imgGLENDALE – A protest is planned for today at the offices of CIGNA, as a teenage girl’s parents call on the insurance company to pay for a liver transplant for their daughter. Nataline Sarkisyan, 17, of Northridge is in the intensive care unit at UCLA Medical Center in Westwood, and her mother says she has been in a vegetative state for three weeks. Nataline will die without the transplant, said her mother, Hilda Sarkisyan. Nataline was diagnosed with leukemia at age 14, and after two years of treatment the cancer went into remission, Hilda said. But this summer it came back. “Cases such as this are not decided based on cost, but rather on the medical appropriateness of treatment,” the statement said. “There is an appeals process in place whereby physicians who are not with CIGNA review a case and provide another viewpoint on the appropriateness of treatment.” The Sarkisyans have filed an appeal with the California Department of Insurance, but the agency on Monday sent a letter saying it needs more information. Hilda said she is happy with the care her daughter has received at UCLA Medical Center since being admitted Nov. 12, suffering from jaundice because of her liver failure. But Hilda said her daughter has gotten worse and now has an inflammation in her lungs. “Now we went backward, and we have to wait for her lungs to clear, and I hope they clear, and I’m praying every minute and every day for her lungs to clear,” Hilda said. Shum Preston, spokesman for the California Nurses Association, said several dozen people are expected to protest today at the CIGNA offices – including nurses, Nataline’s family and members of the Armenian-American community. alex.dobuzinskis@dailynews.com 818-546-3304160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

But Nataline developed a complication from the bone-marrow transplant and, because her liver was failing, doctors recommended a transplant, according to an appeal letter sent to CIGNA earlier this month. But doctors said in the letter that CIGNA denied the transplant, saying Nataline’s plan does not cover “experimental, investigational and unproven services.” The Philadelphia-based CIGNA said Wednesday that federal privacy law prevents it from confirming whether Nataline has insurance with the company.

Bale should stay at Tottenham, insists QPR boss Hughes

first_imgGareth Bale is too young to move abroad and should stay at Tottenham, according to QPR boss Mark Hughes.Barcelona are among the top European clubs to have been linked with a summer move for the Spurs and Wales wide-man.But Hughes, who played for the Catalan giants, believes Bale, 21, would be well advised to remain at White Hart Lane for the foreseeable future.He said: “He’s still a very young man and has got a lot to achieve in the Premier League. He’s got a huge profile and there’s no reason to go when you’re so young.Nedum Onouha faces the task of trying to stop Bale.“I went when I was 22 and it was probably a little bit too soon for me. If I’d had the opportunity later, I think I would have been more successful than I was.“If that [moving abroad] is something Gareth wants to do, then in the future his ability will give him that opportunity.“He’s playing at a good club that are challenging for honours. There’s no reason for him to leave.”Hughes’ side will encounter Bale when Spurs visit Loftus Road for a game both teams badly need to win.Rangers are battling to avoid relegation, while the north London club are trying to avoid dropping out of the top four.“When Gareth’s got the ball you’ve got try to stop him having the effect he can have with the ability he’s got,” said Hughes.“That’s difficult to do, but we’ll endeavour to try and do it.”Click here for the QPR v Tottenham quizSee also: Hughes: QPR full of confidence ahead of Spurs clashAdvertising on West London Sport Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more
