Kakamega Homeboyz FC believe they toyed with Tusker too much and ultimately paid the price for it. Going down 1-0 at home on Sunday against the brewers, Homeboyz rue their missed chances, especially in the first half that could have well buried the game.
Plenty of chances were created by Coach Nicholas Muyoti’s men in the opening half an hour including a disallowed goal. With four men returning to the starting eleven from an injury layoff, one could tell the difference in the hunger for goals, and Muyoti wanted more from it.
”We played too much. From the numerous chances created in the first half, this games should have been ours,” he says.
Captain Allan Wanga echoes these sentiments having seen ninety minutes in the tie.
”Those were plenty of chances and had we converted them, maybe we would be talking a different story now. We have to do better next time,” says the skipper who alongside George Odiwuor, Shami Mwinyi and Ahmed Ali Bhai were returning to the starting eleven.
Tusker, having held their own in the first half, came back with a lone Mejja Henry strike in the second half and this was all. Three points sealed. Muyoti says they have to be cautious next time.
”If you don’t score your chances and your opponent does this is the way it goes. We have to be careful as we go into our next match,” he adds.
Homeboyz, who have only won once this season- and opening day victory against Vihiga United, travel to Mombasa next to take on Bandari this Saturday.
