Coach Robert Matano has hailed the players for their effort and performance after Tuesday’s 2-1 comeback victory over Nzoia Sugar at the Kasarani Annex. The tactician says he was impressed with the players fighting spirit and they showed they could come through tough situations to win.
Second half goals from Jackson Macharia and Henry Meja sealed the victory for Tusker to move seven points clear on top of the BetKing Premier League standings.
“It was a very tough game for us. We know that Nzoia is a strong team with very good running players and they have a lot of energy. We also knew that after beating KCB, they would come strongly and we were ready for us,”
“The first half was tough because they play very well in their first half, but in the second half, we knew they would be tired and we made tactical substitutions that suited our game plan in the final minutes and I am happy we got a win,” the coach said.
He has called on the players to maintain their focus and ensure the victory does not get into their heads, rather focus on every single match ahead.
“This victory is now gone and we forget about it. There is no need to be excited. We cannot talk about it now. Our focus is on the game against Bidco on Saturday and we need to continue being consistent. It is still very early in the league and still tough. But we have to keep working hard and deliver results,” the coach further added.
