Wamalwa fighting spirit has The Don beaming

Oscar Wamalwa celebrates his goal against Kariobangi Sharks which earned Ulinzi Stars a point in the 1 – 1 draw

For the second time in the season, Oscar Wamalwa rose off the bench to bring the much needed impetus as he headed home the equalizer that won Ulinzi Stars a point in the 1 – 1 draw with Kariobangi Sharks on Sunday 8th July.

His goal was an addition to the brace he netted earlier in the season against Nakumatt after coming from the bench to help the team pick a 3 – 2 win after trailing 0 – 1.

His third goal of the season attracted praise from head coach Dunstan The Don Nyaudo, who lauded the lanky forward’s fighting spirit as he hinted on having him play a role in the next game, an away trip to Mumias to face Vihiga United.

Never gives up

“I have always had trust in him and I wish he could be more consistent. Wamalwa is a fighter; I like his attitude and the way he never gives up and I have big plans of using him against Vihiga and against Sharks was just an introduction of what we should expect in the next game,” The Don said.

While the coach was pleased by the forward, and the team’s general fight from a goal down, he opined that the passing from the team was not up to scratch, especially in the first half when Sharks really dominated.

Against Vihiga United, he hopes to see a much improved performance.

“As we tour Mumias for the game I think we need to see more players coming into the midfield and in striking and have more of the performance we put in in the second half against Sharks,” he added.
