Francis Kimanzi has praised Nakumatt for their fluid display of attacking football in the Round 27 league match that saw his side receive a 4-0 hiding at the Camp Toyoyo on Saturday.

Joe Waithera opened the scoring in the third minute before completing his brace five minutes after the hour mark. Second half substitutes Kelvin Thairu and John Avire came off the bench to score a goal apiece and complete the rout.

Kimanzi’s conceded defeat in his post-match remarks that also took in the dismal performance from his charges both offensively and defensively.

“We did not show good character. It is nice to be honest because we played poorly. We did not deserve even a point. Nakumatt played marvelous football and they deserved to get the three points,” admitted Kimanzi.

IMG_6160_0.jpgKimanzi admits that he is worried about the poor form of club top scorer Clifford Alwanga. 

It was put to him that Clifford Alwanga’s goal drought has persisted for eight matches and his late penalty miss did not do any good to snap his poor run of form. He replied: 

“We have to go back to the drawing board and look at what we were doing right in our attacking play. It is bad when this happens to your top scorer but it is something we really want to solve,” he added.
