Coast Stima head coach Hussein Madaga said they will use their win against the Kenyan police as motivation ahead of the Mombasa derby in the National Super League (NSL) game against their rival Modern Coast Rangers at the Mbaraki grounds on Saturday.
Stima, who lost five games in a row, beat title contender Police FC in Nairobi and Madaga hopes this will be the turning point as they correct small mistakes.
“We have small mistakes to correct and I am sure that we will emerge victorious from the Mombasa derby,” said Madaga after the police victory.
At the same time, he added that they are working around the clock to escape relegation after a bad form they are experiencing from a lack of sponsors.
“We still hope to stay in the league with 12 games left. it’s still possible, ”Madaga explained quietly.
On his side, his Modern Coast Rangers counterpart Mohammed Mchule said that despite many injuries in his squad, they have only one goal in mind as they continue to battle for their place in the country’s second division.
“It’s a relegation battle and anything can happen in the derby, but we hope for the best.”
Stima is currently in 18th place with 28 points from 27 games in the relegation zone, while the Rangers are 13th with 34 points from 29 games.
In the first leg at Serani floor in March 2021, the Rangers came from behind to keep their neighbors to a tie of two.
