Head coach Dunstan Nyaudo talks to players during a break in the game against Thika United on Sunday 15th April. He has called for a bigger fight in the game against Chemelil Sugar
After a fine comeback in the 3 – 2 win over Nakumatt FC, head coach Dunstan Nyaudo will be hoping to see the same fighting spirit carried to the Sunday 29th April clash against Chemelil Sugar at Afraha Stadium.
The team fought from a goal down in the 12th round of matches to pick the fifth win of the season and the coach foresees a great run in the coming matches, should the team be more clinical in front of goal.
“I think if there is a quality that we have been improving on, is the fact that we are fighters; we have shown it and the last game was a case in point as we go deeper in the season I want more of that,” he said.
Ahead of the Nakumatt game, the team played a friendly match with County League side Gachie FC and won 6 – 0 and in preparation for Chemelil Sugar, the coach went for a stronger opposition, in National Super League (NSL) side St. Josephs FC.
Goals from Oscar Wamalwa, Bernard Ongoma and Enosh Ochieng guided Ulinzi Stars to a 3 – 2 win and the coach will be hoping to guide the team to the first home win of the month when the Millers tour.
“We picked on St. Joseph because it is a much stronger team than the one we faced last week and we wanted them to give us that challenge. I think we got that in the game and we are also getting sharper in terms of using our chances.
“I hope the same will be applied in the weekend match,” he added.
In the last meeting between the two sides at Afraha Stadium in 2017, Ulinzi Stars picked a 1 – 0 win.
