Players celebrate Elvis Nandwa’s goal against Mathare United on Sunday 14 April
The quest for a strong finish to the season takes Ulinzi Stars to Mombasa where the team will be taking on Bandari FC on Thursday 2nd May, in the 27th round of matches in the Kenyan Premier League and head coach Benjamin Nyangweso is hoping for a positive outcome.
Despite a big fight against Gor Mahia on Monday 29th April, the team fell 1 – 2 at Afraha Stadium and Nyangweso, speaking after the clash, termed it unthinkable losing two straight games, thus his declaration that his charges will give a big fight in Mombasa.
Enosh Ochieng scored his 15th goal of the season but two moments of defensive lapses allowed Gor Mahia score very early, and very late in the clash. Still the performance attracted praise from the coach and he only hopes for an improvement in concentration.
“We played really well; I can’t fault my boys. We just failed to use our chances and we were punished. We lost but the fight continues, and that is what we will be doing in Mombasa on Thursday. We can’t afford to lose two games in a row and so we must fight,” he said.
In the first leg clash at Afraha Stadium, Ulinzi Stars picked a 2 – 1 win over Bandari.
