Kim calls for ruthless attack

Mathare United coach Francis Kimanzi follows proceedings from the touchline during their Kenyan Premier League match against Kakamega Homeboyz at Moi International Sports Centre, Kasarani on Saturday, January 19, 2019. Mathare won 3-2.

Mathare United coach Francis Kimanzi has urged his forwards to be more clinical in front of goal despite beating Kakamega Homeboyz 3-2 at Kasarani on Saturday.

Chrispin Oduor scored a first half brace while Cliff Nyakeya added the third at the hour mark to cancel out goals from Allan Wanga and Luke Namanda.

The margin of victory could have be been biiger had Nyakeya and Chris Ochieng' converted clear cut chances that came their way.

While the win saw the Slum Boys reclaim top spot, Kimanzi was not overly impressed by his forwards.

Kill the game

"We were in control for very long and we had many chances to kill the game. At this level it is important that you kill the game when you are on top," said Kimanzi.

With 20 points from eight matches, Mathare United are two points ahead of second placed Bandari. However Kimanzi insists it's still early days.

Long journey

"It's a long journey, we have just done eight rounds so there are many more to come. We will continue taking each game at a time, the most important thing is to be more efficient every time we step on the pitch and ensure we give fans something to smile about," he offered.

The league leaders welcome Vihiga United on Sunday, January 27, in their next league match.
