Nyaudo: Fighting spirit a positive from Sharks game

Head coach Dunstan Nyaudo termed the draw with Sharks a big positive after fighting from a goal down

Head coach Dunstan Nyaudo has welcomed the point earned in the 1 – 1 draw with Kariobangi Sharks on Sunday 8th July at Afraha Stadium, with a pat on the back for his players’ fighting spirit in the clash.

Ulinzi Stars went behind in the 13th minute, but rallied to get the equalizer in the 88th minute through Oscar Wamalwa.

The outcome should have been different had a number of clear chances been converted and while the coach admitted the finishing should have been better, he acknowledges the positives seen as he looks to build on them ahead of the Vihiga United game, which comes next.

Point won

“To us it was a point won and a good starting point in preparation for the Vihiga United game. Kariobangi Sharks is a formidable team, and coming from down to get a point is a good thing for us because it happens so rarely so it is a big positive,” he said.

Skipper of the day Geoffrey Kokoyo, and new signing Harun Mwale missed great chances in the clash but The Don didn’t level any blame on the two.

“The fighting spirit in the last 20 – 30 minutes was wonderful and we created a number of good chances, one of them a big one which Kokoyo headed high and I can’t blame him because he is a defender and decision making in such situations is a problem.

“Mwale is a new player in the league and he is still learning and I cannot blame him as well. Hopefully they will do better next time,” he added.
