Benja assures of rectifying shortfalls in team


Head coach Benjamin Nyangweso has admitted there are loose ends to be fastened in the team in a bid to improve it for the remainder of the season. In his second game in charge, the team fell 0 – 1 to Kakamega Homeboyz at Bukhungu Stadium, and he picked out the attack as an area that needs reinforcement.

On a general, Ulinzi Stars were dominant in the clash but failed to make use of the chances created before Moses Mudavadi struck in the 68th minute to decide the course of the match.

Speaking after the match, the coach noted that the team will take the lessons from the clash and going forward, he promised to work on further sharpening the attack.

Didn’t deserve to lose

“Sometimes you lose and have to accept defeat but with such a game it was different. We were on top for the entire 90 minutes and I don’t think we deserved to lose. We take a big lesson from this game that when you get a chance, use it lest you get punished. We will have that in mind going forward.

“The way the team is playing is good but our biggest problem now is putting the ball in the net,” he said.

Next up for the team is a game against AFC Leopards, at home on Sunday 7th April and Benja hopes to see a better and sharper side turn up.

“We have a tough game next and we have to go back very fast and rectify all we got wrong and also motivate the players. We will be playing at home and the players need to know that we cannot afford to lose back to back games, and especially when playing at home,” he added.
