Slipped Points Hurt Nyaudo

Head Coach Dunstan Nyaudo was hurt at his team’s concession in the final minute.

Head coach Dunstan Nyaudo was a disappointed man, rightly so, after watching the team take the lead then concede late to draw 2 – 2 with Posta Rangers in the Sunday 18th March clash at Afraha Stadium.

Quick goals from Cliff Kasuti and Mohamed Hassan set the team on course for a third straight win but loss of possession in the midfield in the 90th minute saw Rangers score a stoppage time goal to ensure a share of the spoils.

The coach termed it a painful result as he rued the lapse in concentration.

Not easy

“It is not easy for me to accept such a result from a game we were very close to winning; when you look at it well, the concentration in defence was not up to scratch when we conceded, and I can say it was a painful result,” he said.

Rangers had to play a large part of the match a man down and though there may be questions on Ulinzi’s failure to use the numerical advantage, the coach admits facing a team with 10 men is never easy.

“Playing a team that is less is normally very difficult because psychologically they know they are disadvantaged and so they give more but I told my players we must build from the back and try to get goals from that and it paid off in the end,” he added.

Fighting spirit

While it was a painful result, as the coach puts, the match also gave him vital observations as he saw his team’s fighting spirit.

“For the first time we were forced to chase a game at home and we got two goals; for the better part of the game we were very positive, until we were picked out three minutes from the final whistle,” he noted.
