Overall Nairobi City Stars skipper Calvin Masawa is encouraged by a switch in fortunes since the second leg of the 2022-23 FKF Premier League started in March.
Masawa, City Stars longest serving player, in the club ranks since the year 2011, has pointed out a combination of factors that has seen the club post more acceptable results compared to the first leg.
“We had a very bad first leg due to the massive changes in the playing unit. But being a transition season that was expected,”
“I am happy the group learned and gelled so fast that’s why we are having a near-perfect second leg. That, combined with hard work and determination, is why we registered a seven-game unbeaten streak before our last game,”
“We want that good run to continue as we want to finish the league stronger.”
At the close of the 17 games in the first leg, City Stars had only managed 12 points out of a possible 54 from three wins and as many draws. The team is now on 33 points with two games left to season end.
On his part, Masawa has featured in 11 of 32 games played thus far, clocking 863 minutes.
