Kakamega Homeboyz want to bring to a halt Gor Mahia dominance by lifting a maiden Kenyan Premier League, says coach Nicholas Muyoti.
The former Kenyan international believes that he can become the first coach after Paul Nkata to end K’Ogalo’s three-year dominance despite the fact that his side trails the record Kenyan champions and current league leaders by four points.
Homeboyz are third in the log with 41 points, same as Tusker who have a game in hand and four points adrift of leaders Gor Mahia.
But an enterprising Muyoti, who won his first accolade as a coach by bagging the January Fidelity Insurance Coach of the Month Award, is upbeat that the good run recorded by his side last month can end Gor Mahia’s three-year reign when the Kenyan League winds up.
“Our target remains winning the league and we really believe it can happen,” the former AFC Leopards forward said.
“I’d love to break Gor Mahia’s dominance and give the top division some excitement. The league is not interesting at all when one team wins every season.
“All the teams in the top four or five have a chance and it’s only going to depend on who has the best run in,” added Muyoti.
Homeboyz ascended to the summit of the KPL and held on for thirteen days before losing grip. But his performance with the side saw Muyoti subdue Gor Mahia tactician Steven Polack for the January gong in a unanimous vote cast by Sports Journalists Association of Kenya.
“We are prepared to go all the way and win this league even though our motto remains taking one game at a time.”
He registered impeccable results in January winning four out of four scoring nine goals in the process.
First to feel the pain was relegation bound Kisumu All-Stars who soaked in four goals at the hands of ruthless Homeboyz.
Muyoti then mastered a 1-0 victory over Zoo then crowned the month by trouncing defending champions Gor Mahia 2-1.
A routine 2-1 victory over Kariobangi Sharks sent Homeboyz cruising to the top and completed an excellent month.
