Ulinzi Stars’ main issue this season has been in attack – a lack of goals is majorly to blame for the team being eighth in the BetKing Premier League (BKPL) standings, with 14 points from a possible 33.
However, all signs point to an improvement in attack and head coach Benjamin Nyangweso hopes to see the goals flowing. In the last two matches, the Soldiers have scored seven goals; twice against Western Stima, and five times against Elim FC in the FKF Cup.
The team has seven goals in the 11 league matches played, sticking out among the lowest scorers, though they have the second best defence and Nyangweso says he’s liking the dedication his players have showed to change things in attack.
“We scored twice in our last league match, and five in the cup game, though against a lower ranked team. Scoring goals is all about confidence and I hope the last two matches give us the confidence we need in attack.
“I’ve also seen a lot of positivity in training; the players are burning to end this bad (scoring) run and I’m happy at that. I’m confident the goals are coming but I want to see us go even harder in attack because we are creating enough chances,” he’s quoted by the club.
Ulinzi Stars will be up against the team just below them, Sofapaka in their next game. Both sides are on 14 points but Sofapaka have an inferior goal difference.
