Newly promoted Green Commandos will be out for a maiden win in the second tier when they face Isibania on Sunday, March 18, 2018, at the Bukhungu Stadium in Kakamega.

The Kakamega High School side has lost thrice and shared the spoils two times, a statistic that sees them ranked a lowly 18th on the log.

Coach Brenden Mwinamo is however happy with the team’s style of play and is of the view that a maiden win will open the floodgates.

“We are young in the league but we are working extra hard to improve our performance,” said coach Mwinamo following Green Commandos 1-0 loss to Ushuru in their last match.

“Competition (in the NSL) is very stiff, but once we get our first win, things will be easier for us,” he added.

Isibania coach Dan Musta, meanwhile, has intimated his desire to get all three points from the match, but acknowledged that it may not be easy at Commandos’ backyard.

“We have previously played Green Commandos (in the third tier Division One League) and they are a good side,” said coach Musta.

“We will however look to build on our 1-0 win over Nairobi City Stars last weekend, and hopefully we can finish the first leg among the top five teams,” he added.
