Kenyan international Johanna Omolo believes his teammates at Cercle Brugge are more confident at the moment compared to how they were at the start of the start of the season.
The side moved second on Belgium’s First Division B standings after beating OH Leuven by a solitary goal on Friday though they had to finish the match with 10 men after Gervin Tormin was sent off in the 50th minute.
Against Leuven, Omollo who came off the bench, brought stability to the midfield and won them a penalty.
“I would like to say something about our numerical minority, and I think it is very important to see how far we have come. When you compare with the start of this season, there is more confidence in the group and that now yields points, but now we have to look forward. Next week is another important match for us," he told the club’s official portal.
The former Royal Antwerp defensive midfielder is satisfied despite coming on as a substitute in the final half. He is impressed with the quality in the team and believes it can propel them to league triumph.
“That's right (starting off the bench), but that also shows the quality in this group, everyone can play, and that's going to be important for us if we want to win this competition. We need everyone if we want to take the title. Other players can stand on the field and win as well, that is very important,“ he added.
The side is currently enjoying a six match unbeaten run with the last four matches being straight wins. They will face Beerschot-Wilrijk on Saturday before taking on league leaders Lierse six days later.
