Coach Robert Matano has praised the performance and the effort of the team in punching a ticket to the quarter finals of the Football Kenya Federation Betwat Cup. The team progressed to Wednesday’s quarter against AFC Leopards after beating Division One side Luanda Villa 1-0 on Saturday at Ruaraka.
“The most important thing was to win and I am delighted with the performance. The opponents showed their worth but it is always expected when a team faces a bigger opponent but I am happy with how my players fared and we are through to the next stage,” coach Matano said.
He also admitted the players showed some signs of fatigue after the back to back matches, but has hinted at rotating the team to ensure everyone remains fresh.
“There was some element of fatigue because we have been travelling and playing three games in one week is not easy. But we are coming up well. We are many and there are others who are working. We will shuffle the team to ensure everyone remains fresh. We know we will do something better for the next match,” added the coach.
