Ulinzi Stars head coach Benjamin Nyangweso has declared his preparations for the second BetKing Premier League (BKPL) game will be focused more on attack. The league winning coach’s comments came after his side suffered a 1-0 loss to Gor Mahia in their opening game of the season.
The four-time league champions had a lot of good chances in the Saturday 12th December clash at Nyayo Stadium but couldn’t make them count as they started their season on a low.
Hope for the future
The coach had to watch the game from the stands as his covid test results were not yet out by the time his team took to the pitch. From up there, he could pick out the attack as the weakest link but generally noted that his charges did well and can only focus ahead, hoping for better displays.
“Our plan was to get a win or at least a point since we were playing away from home but this is part of the game. I think we played well only that we couldn’t convert our chances but I believe with more matches we will rectify all areas we fell short,” he pointed out.
Nyangweso’s side could not engage in preseason friendly matches due to the conditions set by the government to curb the spread of Covid-19 and he admitted his side paid the price.
“Because of the covid protocols set we could not play friendly matches so we lacked match fitness as well. I would say the players gave a good effort and now that we have seen our main problem we are going to rectify and work harder in the next game,” he added.
The Nakuru based side will be back in Nairobi for its second match of the season, against Wazito FC on Saturday 19th December at Kasarani.
