Strathmore University men's team must operate in all departments when they resume their Kenya Handball Federation league action this week.

Coach Peter Mwathi said the students, who are also league runners-up, have no option but to sharpen up both offensive and defensive departments.

'Strath' who suffered a shock 31-27 loss to Inspired in their last league assignment in July, have two games this weekend.

They meet UOE Pippers on Saturday before facing off against champions National Cereals and Produce Board (NCPB) the following day.

Strathmore, who lost all their games against NCPB in both the league and Super Cup, will have to come out guns blazing.

Unbeaten NCPB are top with 20 points from 10 games while the students are seventh with 12 points from one loss.

"I have a lot of respect for NCPB. They are a good side with players who have a lot of experience than most of the other teams."

He went on: "Therefore, we have to approach this epic match with this in our mind."

Mwathi said they will have to make sure they utilize every opportunity available to maximize their chances of winning the match.

"They have a good goalkeeper and you know in handball this position determines how the match goes. We must plan well on our shots."

They will be going for goals since at the end of the league all this will count in case of ties.
