-It feels great to have won, it's been a very tough period both for the club and for the fans so it was very nice to win, Olunga told Cmores.
Ranegie on his side feels that the new coach has changed the side quickly believes that they are strong when playing with Olunga in the attack.
- It feels like we are stronger on breaks. When we play with Olunga infront, we must use our weight and height. That is what our plan, said Ranegie.
Dempsey who took over early late last week is happy with the whole side and the partnership between Olunga and Ranégie in the attack also.
-All the players deserve credit. All players deserve praise and did a very good job. But above all, Mathias and Michael are very good upfront, said Dempsey.
