Job Ochieng' is confident of keeping a clean sheet in his third start of the season against Posta Rangers at the Moi International Sports Centre, Kasarani on Wednesday.

The 19 year old shot stopper was promoted to the senior team in January and has featured twice this season in the 1-0 loss to Wazito and the 2-2 draw against Tusker last Sunday.

His exploits have convinced coach Francis Kimanzi that he is now ripe for the first team after spending majority of the season as an understudy to David Okello and Robert Mboya who left the club in June.

Trust

"I am happy that the coach has shown trust in me becaue it's very rare to get playing time in your first season in the topflight as a rookie. I want to continue working harder to repay his trust in me with good performances on the pitch," said Ochieng' who turns 20 in December.

He is yet to keep a clean sheet in the league despite showing glimpses of maturing into a top keeper. He reckons that with support from Okello and goalkeeper trainer Samuel Koko he can upset Rangers tomorrow.

Support

"Okello has been really supportive and I have learnt a lot from him since he joined us. He always advises me on what to do in different game situations," revealed Ochieng'.

"I think I have learnt a lot from those two games and I now want to go for a clean sheet in the next game I play," underlined the Kenya Under 23 international.
