Rio in action against Posta Rangers
Ulinzi Stars have not lost at home so far in the current campaign and defender Mohamed Rio Hassan, who has had a great impact in the team for the last three matches wants it to stay so.
The defender scored the second goal in the 2 – 2 draw with Tusker and though he will welcome the point picked, says it was a painful result but picks a positive in the fact the team did not lose.
So far the team has drawn twice and won twice in the four home matches played and Rio says they should work on never letting points leak out of Afraha for the long term, and in the meantime work to seal the gap with the league leading pack.
“It was a painful result for us by the manner in which we conceded. Had we conceded earlier in the match maybe we’d have fought and equalized.
“The most important thing however, is that we have taken our lessons and we will work for an improvement next time. I am also happy that at least we did not lose and now we should work on making our homeground a fortress. Team’s should not be getting points easily at Afraha,” he said.
After the draw, the team is placed eighth on the standings with 11 points, five behind joint leaders Gor Mahia and AFC Leopards.
