Matano admits Tusker started poorly against Sofapaka

Tusker FC head coach Robert Matano has admitted that his side started the game poorly as the Brewers registered a 1-1 draw against Sofapaka on Sunday at the MISC Kasarani.

The Brewers fell behind in the opening minutes when Eli Asieche gave Batoto Ba Mungu the lead. Luke Namanda however got the leveler for Matano’s men to ensure the spoils were shared but the tactician was far from impressed with his team’s show.

“We started the match poorly but we slowly improved….we wasted some chances in the first half and another clear one in the second half. These are chances we should have utilized but sometimes that happens in football,” he said.


Matano further spoke of his disappointment at dropping points.

“I wanted to win this game but we did not manage to get all the points. It feels like a loss because just like any other coach I train my team to get all three points. We were not composed from the word go, we did not stick to our plan. We also had communication issues in our defense but these are things that happen in football and we now need to focus on our next assignment,”,” he added.

Matano made a change in his goalkeeping department bringing in Robert Mboya for Emery Mvuyekure and the gaffer explained why he had to make a change between the posts.

“We knew that this is a game with pressure and that’s why I started him (Mboya), he thrives under pressure. I know who to field in different matches,” he concluded.

Next for the Brewers is a match against Kakamega Homeboyz at Bukhungu Stadium in Kakamega.
