When Kariobangi Sharks won a penalty against Tusker during Sunday’s Betking Premier League (BPL) match at Utalii grounds, coach Robert Matano opted to look away as it was being taken.
Tusker goalkeeper Michael Wanjala easily dealt with the penalty and coach Matano says he was sure his custodian would deal with the situation.
“Wanjala is a sure bet in saving penalties and that is why i did not look as it was being taken. He saves them well in training,” he said.
Matano also termed their Sunday win as very important and has turned around their ambitions.
“We have gotten an important victory. After losing two games in a row, we had to win without leaving room for a draw or a loss,” he said.
Kariobangi Sharks coach William Muluya regretted that his side is being let down by inability to score goals.
“We just cannot score goals even when we get penalties,” he said. Asked why his top scorer Eric Kapaito was not allowed to take the penalty, Muluya said he (Kapaito) had missed two penalties already and could have affected him.
“He has also been injured but i know he will start scoring goals again. Otherwise we have to take our chances and remain positive so that we can start getting good results again,” he said.
