Transfer plans may change, The Don says

Dunstan Nyaudo has hinted at a possible change to transfer plans after two straight losses exposed weaknesses in the team

Two straight losses, five goals conceded and just one scored in the process may just be the signal that much strengthening needs to be done to the team in the June transfer window, going by head coach Dunstan The Don Nyaudo’s sentiments after the Thursday 7th June loss to Tusker.

Ulinzi Stars fell 0 – 3 to the Brewers, straight after a 1 – 2 loss at the hands of Sofapaka at Afraha Stadium and the coach acknowledged the weaknesses spotted in the two matches may force a change in transfer plans.

Against Sofapaka, the blame was on the defence, and against Tusker it was in the midfield and The Don has hinted at possible reinforcements in the departments.


“Looking at what is happening now and the shortfalls in the two matches, I think I may just be forced to consider adding a striker and a midfielder to my list of transfer targets. The past two results may see us make a few changes to the planned transfer activity and next week we may see two new players as we try to stabilize,” he said.

The loss to Tusker left Ulinzi Stars fourth on the log with 28 points, six behind league leaders Gor Mahia, who have played three matches less. The coach is however confident that the team will catch up

“In terms of the championship, we are not too far because the other results have not opened up a very big gap and in the next match we will come back stronger and hopefully that will place us somewhere,” he added.
