No dropping guard ahead of Nakumatt game

The team warmed up for the Nakumatt FC game with a morale boosting 6 – 0 win over Gachie FC on Thursday 19th April

The recent results may have not gone in the team’s favor but there is no relenting towards the push to get back to winning ways at the soonest possible chance, head coach Dunstan Nyaudo declared after the Thursday 19th April training session.

In a practice match that formed the afternoon training session on Thursday, Ulinzi Stars hit Gachie FC 6 – 0 with Oscar Wamalwa, Ibrahim Shambi, Charles Orinda, Justus Onuonga, Masita Masuta and Elvis Nandwa getting the goals.

Instill confidence

The coach notes that in the game his aim was to instill confidence in his forward players as well as work on build up play and judging from the score line, he should be confident as the Nakumatt game approaches.

“Finishing has been the biggest headache for us in the past few matches so we need to work on that ahead of the weekend game and I also wanted to see our build up play. I am happy that all our key forwards scored, which is crucial in bringing back their confidence,” he said.

In the three matches in April, the team has managed just two points and in the last game the players were crestfallen after a barren draw with Thika United at home but three days to the Nakumatt game, he says the smiles are back.


He will definitely hope to cash in on the confidence in the team but has called for caution against Nakumatt.

“The confidence is there now; I have seen good response since the Thika United game and I can feel the boys are ready to give their all. We have spoken about the chances we have been creating but not scoring and they now understand why it is important to convert them.

“We are going to a very tough game and this is very important. Nakumatt is a team full of experienced players and should be approached with caution. We have also been here for a while so we have what it takes to match them,” the coach added.
