Goalkeeper Jacktone Odhiambo makes a save during the game against Gor Mahia at Afraha Stadium on Saturday 23rd June
As the team takes in another disappointing result – the 0 – 2 loss to Gor Mahia on Saturday 23rd June – head coach Dunstan Nyaudo has insisted the team has to improve on its offensive fabric, to better its fortunes in the season.
A few big misses in the opening minutes of the game, as well as misses in the second half summed up the team’s 20th outing of the season, with just two points picked in the last five matches, and the coach hopes he can see better from his forward players.
After missing a horde of chances, Gor Mahia took the lead through Francis Kahata in the 12th minute and doubled their advantage in the 86th with another easy goal from Jacques Tuyisenge.
“This remains our best team and we can only improve on that performance. We did not do so well in attack; we had our chances in the early minutes and I felt we should have killed this game at that point. We were wasteful once again and got punished for that as well as giving our opponents easy goals,” he said.
On a more positive front, Omar Boraafya, who was introduced in the second half, showed a glimpse of his best with a few good tackles and prowess in attack, attracting praise from the coach.
“The subs we made also didn’t have much impact. Boraafya did well though, in terms of pressing forward and helping out in defence and he just needs to build on the performance in the game.
“We have to go back to the drawing board and see how we rectify this because the run we have now is a real concern and we have to stop it as fast as possible,” he added.
Next up for the team is a game against Thika United at Kinoru Stadium in Meru. Thika and Ulinzi played to a 0-0 draw in the first leg.
