Odhiambo expressed confidence that Bandari will win its next away match against Kakamega Homeboys on March 28.
The tactician said with the combination of experience and young players, Bandari was capable of beating any team in the league,
“Our aim is to repeat the performance of 2016 where the team won GoTV cup and represented the country in the CAF Confederation Cup,” added the coach.
Former Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Mombasa branch Chairman, Ali Tito commended the team for the good performance in the on-going premier league matches.
Tito called on the fans to turn up in large numbers during the team’s home matches to give the players moral support.
