Kakamega Homeboyz FC forward Christopher Masinza is not worried at all that his team started the season slow but chooses instead to take their recent outings a positive. Homeboyz, currently placed 11th on the 18-team BetKing Premier League log, finished second from last season- and what a free-scoring side they were.
Masinza is currently on two goals, not far away from the likes of Allan Wanga, Mudavadi Moses and Sylvester Owino who are all on three goals each for the side. But having been on a scoring spree himself, believes his team is just getting started.
”We all had to admit that we started poorly and it would take some time for us to get our groove back. Most importantly, we did not panic, and kept our cool,” Masinza says of the new season that has also had giants like Gor Mahia struggling.
Masinza opened his gal account against Gor Mahia when the champions came calling at the Bukhungu stadium two weeks ago, a 2-1 loss to the hosts Homeboyz but forward had found his scoring boots.
The next trip would be away to Mathare United and it is here he found his second of the season, and this time-lucky enough to see his team grab a 2-1 win on the road. Goals for Nicholas Muyoti’s men have come from all departments, something Chris believes can be built into a strength.
”We had trouble scoring for the few matches that followed after match day 2 but we eventually found our way. Everyone puts in the work and a goal expected from anyone. I think that’s why our goals are evenly spread across the team,” he continues.
Sylvester Owino, who ties with Allan Wanga and Moses Mudavadi on three goals, is a central defender and they are followed by midfielders David Okoth and Shami Kibwana.
Abana Beingo next host Sofapaka at the Bukhungu stadium and will be keen on firing in more goals- whilst protecting their rearguard that has denied them some easy points in the past. Sofapaka are only one point adrift of Homeboyz.
