Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Premier League (FKF) Premier League basement side Vihiga Bullets have declared that they will use the international break to evaluate their performance in the 2022/2023 season in a bid to make an improvement.

The team’s trainer Milton Kidiga said the break has come at an opportune time when they are battling relegation, adding that they will convene a meeting to ascertain their frailties and accordingly fix them.

“We did not get the results we had planned for majorly due to financial challenges. We came short of getting the returns we had planned for hence the impending freewheeling forum between the technical bench and players. I have to commend the calmness from the players all along as they kept faith that we were going to get the desired results which never came,” said Kidiga.

“Hopefully, Bullets will be a different preposition altogether sooner rather than later.  We will return to the drawing board to fine tune tactics ahead of the resumption of the league and woo unto any team that shall look down upon us,’’ he said.

The tactician went on: “We have enjoyed unflinching support from our fans and have to reciprocate the same with a good performance on the pitch. We are not going to take anything for granted. We know where we are coming from and what is ahead of us.’’

Kidiga, who took over the team’s coaching from George Owoko who resigned owing to family commitments, conceded that their work is cut out but nonetheless said he holds the belief that the current set-up can hold on its own to avoid extradition from the top tier league.

“I have a dedicated band of players and if they can grasp my philosophy, nothing will stop Bullets from remaining in the top flight league next year.  Obviously, to achieve that, hard work shall be key,” said Kidiga who had been serving as Owoko’s assistant before being elevated as Head Coach.

Bullets have struggled this season and sit bottom of the FKF-PL with a paltry five points from 19 matches they have played thus far in the campaign.
