Posta Rangers coach Sammy Omollo is hopeful of getting his first FKF Premier League win of the season on Sunday away to Vihiga United.

Despite putting up some fine displays on the pitch, the Mailmen have not registered any wins in the seven games they have so far played.

They have managed to get six draws and lost just one match which came against leaders KCB.

The experienced coach is now anticipating a win against their hosts who have managed to get five points from the seven games played.

"This is another opportunity for me and my players to get our elusive win in the league," the optimistic Omollo told Goal on Sunday.

World media reacts to Rangers win over Celtic as Steven Gerrard's men given 'no limits' acclaim

  World media reacts to Rangers win over Celtic as Steven Gerrard's men given 'no limits' acclaim The derby isn't just big news in Scotland but is covered by news outlets across the globe and the reaction is interesting to behold. And while the likes of River Plate vs Boca Juniors and Liverpool vs Manchester United have their own allure, there's no denying the unique rivalry between Celtic and Rangers still captures the imagination of many across the planet, who wouldn't normally give Scottish football a second glance.

The mailmen struggled badly in the just concluded season and had to wait until the final game of the season to know their fate.

Posta Rangers have vowed to finish the 2017 Kenyan Premier League season in second place. But Sammy Omollo side have pledged to win their next match against Mathare United to move back But that dream will only be made possible with a maximum point against Mathare United and hope that

"It is quite unfortunate that despite playing well in our last six matches, we have not managed to get a win. Of the six games, we had, at some point, lost concentration in about three matches and as a result, we were punished.

"But I am hopeful on Sunday we are going to get a win and it will boost our confidence. Once we get one win, others will surely come."

The hosts have been having internal issues owing to financial constraints and last week, technical director Nick Yakhama and coach Sammy Okoth had expressed their intentions to quit.

The management managed to convince them to stay, but Omollo has, however, warned his charges against underrating their opponents.

"You cannot go to a battle overconfident of defeating your opponent because of a misfortune," the former Harambee Stars defender continued.

"That is just like planning to fail. We are looking at Vihiga the same way as Gor Mahia, AFC Leopards, or Tusker FC. I have already told my players that this game needs all the seriousness it deserves."

Omollo has further shed light on what he has told the players ahead of Sunday's game.

"We are going for early goals; I am saying goals because at some point we have scored a goal and we end up conceding because the opponents know they have a chance," he concluded.

"But if we get two or three goals, our opponents will be frustrated and we will be in a good position to win."

On January 30, 2008 the then 23-year-old Scotland right-back was sold to Tottenham Hotspur for £9 million, eclipsing the previous highest fee the Ibrox club had received for a player when Giovanni van Bronckhorst joined Arsenal for £8.5 million in the summer of 2001.
