Build up and transition more important, coach says

Oscar Injika is placed under tight watch by Tusker players during the match at Ruaraka on Saturday 24th March

Head coach Dunstan Nyaudo paid more attention to key aspects in the team’s performance in the friendly match against Tusker rather than the 1 – 3 loss picked in the clash at Ruaraka on Saturday 24th March.

The team, coming from a 2 – 2 draw with Posta Rangers in the league, opted for a training match with Tusker, having played the Brewers two weeks back and won 1 – 0 and the coach notes that the key aspect of the game he was looking at was the build up from defence.


He said in reaction, that he was impressed at the team’s pressing and having rested a number of key players, including defenders Oliver Ruto, and George Omondi, as well as Churchill Muloma, he was also pleased at the input of the selected players.

“I am happy with the pressing part of our game; the way we were pressing from midfield and coming up from the defence and generally the build up was the more important aspect of this game for me.

Rested players

“I rested four players who are my regular starters because they have always been playing since we started the season till now, so I wanted to test those who have not been playing as well so I can see how well they can come into the team because you are never sure, when you will lose that player you depend on so much,” he said.
