Eymael urges players to remain focused
Rayon Sports coach Luc Eymael is urging his outfit side to remain focused as the club seeks to retain the league title.
The Belgian admitted that the win against Etincelles was another remarkable step towards Rayon retaining the title.
Rayon Sports have 52 points, level with second-placed APR but the former have a superior goal difference with four rounds of matches remaining.
“It’s good that we have won against Etincelles but we need to remain focused because the job is yet to be finished. We have to stay calm and focused until the end of the season. We are happy to be on top. But we can’t start celebrating now because nothing has been won yet,” Eymael said in a post match interview on Sunday.
Rayon Sports’ 17th win of the season in 22 matches was orchestrated by Burundian international midfielder cum striker Cedric Amissi, who netted his tenth and eleventh goals of season. Robert Ndatimana netted the other goal.
Between now and May 3, the top two must avoid dropping points in the remaining four fixtures because any slight slip-up for either side, would hand the title to their rivals.
Defending champions Rayon Sports will face Marines on April 5 in Rubavu; AS Kigali on April 20 at Amahoro stadium and Esperance on April 26 at Kigali regional stadium before winding up the season against Musanze on May 3 at Amahoro stadium.
Meanwhile, APR faces SC Kiyovu on April 5 at Kigali regional stadium; Amagaju on April 20 at Kigali regional stadium; Espoir in Rusizi on April 26 and AS Muhanga in Kicukiro on May 3.
Amagaju and Esperance remain locked in the relegation zone with 13 and 12 points respectively.
