Impala Saracens backs coach Oscar Osir is confident his charges will emerge victorious in the final of the Impala Floodlit against KCB RFC on Saturday at the Impala Grounds.

The rugby sevens beau ideal, while speaking to the Impala Saracens media unit, said that a win will be the important thing on Saturday, and that his side were working on the process of ensuring they get that.

He further alluded a closely-fought encounter: the last three Floodies encounter between the two have been 18-17  and 26-14 wins for KCB in 2017 and 2015 respectively, with Impala winning  33-32 in 2016.

"If you ask me now, we will take a win. 7-5,9-10...all that is important is the win.

"Anything that gives us the win we will take it. We are working on that process. Our focus is on the facets that will earn us that win and we are working on those particular facets," said the former Kenya Shujaa team manager.

Osir- who represented KCB, Mwamba and Impala during his playing days, alluded that Saturday may provide the right chance for retribution. 

Sarries closely lost to KCB during last year's final, and it was also in the hands of the Ruaraka-based side that they missed out on a slot in the Kenya Cup final.

"For the boys, this particular fixture is very important.We drew 9-9 against KCB in the 2017/18 Kenya Cup League on March 3rd, but lost 0-15 to them in the Kenya Cup semis on the 17th of the same month. It is usually an interesting encounter between us and no better time to reclaim our glory than now."
