After a disappointing 1-0 loss to host Kakamega Homeboyz, head coach Ken Odhiambo discussed Homeboyz’s loss, missed opportunities, slow start, and lack of concentration in a post-match briefing.
“We lost to Kakamega Homeboyz on Sunday because we didn’t give our best in the game. We began sluggishly and we got punished for it though we tried to fight back in the final half of the game that wasn’t enough to salvage a point in the encounter.”
“Football is a game of chances, the Homeboyz created one and they utilized it in the game. We created numerous goal-scoring opportunities but we weren’t calm and decisive in our final third and this made it difficult for us to come back in the match.”
On the defeat piling more pressure;
“Definitely yes the loss in Kakamega piles more pressure on us a team and the technical bench. We had a plan and a target but with inconsistent results, we find ourselves in such a pressure situation because such performance keeps off our targets for the season.”
“It has been a concern because in our previous fixtures we have dropped points. On Sunday wasn’t any different, we got punished yet again due to concentration with six minutes of play. We work on it and hopefully, it shall be addressed going into future encounters.”
On whether season target still achievable;
“We are two games to the end of the first leg of the campaign, I believe we are still on course. We want to win our next two home fixtures and build on some proper consistency moving forward because this the only way we are going to get our season up and running.”
On the next assignment;
“We have ten days to our next league fixture against Gor Mahia, we embark on some proper preparations for the game. This a perfect opportunity to us, a win will boost our confidence level.”
We shall play Gor Mahia on Wednesday 31st March.
