Experienced Waruru

Waruru joined the club from KCB FC in the run-up to the season and brings with him much needed experience having played for the likes of Sofapaka and Ulinzi Stars and winning a league title with the latter.

His sentiments were echoed by Mogaka who on his part has been with the team throughout their journey in the National Super League (NSL).

He said, “We could have got more out of the game, had we taken all our chances. A point, away, is still a positive result, nonetheless. We need now to bounce back and give a better performance in our next match.”

Anthony Akhulia’s charges will next play hosts to AFC Leopards at the Kasarani Stadium on Sunday with the match expected to receive live broadcast.
