Kakamega Homeboyz FC had an injury scare on Sunday 21st at the Bukhungu Stadium when they came up against Sofapaka. Christopher Masinza seemed unable to rise off an aerial contest between himself and Nixon Omondi and upon close assessment, he had suffered a cut above his eye causing blood to spurt out.
Homeboyz were then forced into a first half substitution.
Masinza was, however, attended to immediately by team doctor with immediate stitches but his duty for the day was over as he watched Selemani Hamisi take up his place with Homeboyz leading 1-0. He says he is fine noMw.
”It was a minor cut even though I lost a lot of blood. The doctor did well to stop it immediately and stitched me up well,” says the forward who has contributed to two goals for Nicholas Muyoti’s men this season.
Homeboyz went ahead to win 1-0, a result that sends them to the top half of the table standings for the first time since match week one this season. Masinza, though gutted to have left the stage early, believes he will bounce back and continue his goal scoring form that has him on two goals in the team’s last three matches.
”We are now scoring goals as a team and that is enough motivation for us as strikers. Initially, we weren’t getting the goals and the overall performance was poor. It’s good to get all the points and when I come back, I’ll pick up from where I left,” he adds.
Coach Muyoti started the trio of Masinza, Allan Wanga and Moses Mudavadi but it was Ghanaian import Alex Opoku who got the all important goal on Sunday. They next take their hunt to Nairobi against Kariobangi Sharks FC.
