Ulinzi Stars head coach Benjamin Nyangweso has set out to work on his team’s attack as the attention at the Soldiers shift towards Vihiga United in their fifth match of the season.
The title winning coach cut a disappointed figure after his side played to a 0-0 draw with Kariobangi Sharks in the BetKing Premier League clash on Saturday 2 January at Kasarani.
It was the third match of their four so far that concerns had been raised about the attack and Nyangweso hopes he can sort it out early enough in the season. He admitted after the game that he had hoped for three points in the clash, and though he took a clean sheet, he said with better finishing the reward would have been bigger.
Two points dropped
“No team playing in Nairobi can talk of home advantage; I think we are as favored as the Nairobi teams when we come around and that’s why I feel like we dropped two points here. I am happy we didn’t concede but sad that we didn’t score.
“Once again we failed to make use of our chances in attack and it is something that I will give a lot of attention to as we go back to training. I am hoping we can address this as early as possible so we can achieve our season’s ambitions,” he noted.
After four matches this season, Ulinzi Stars have conceded just one goal. Goalkeeper James Saruni has kept three straight clean sheets and their only win came in the only home game as they beat Kakamega Homeboyz 2-0 on 23rd December.
The Soldiers, four-time league champions, are now placed ninth in the 18-team league standings.
