Tusker head coach Robert Matano has praised the team for their resilient fight, coming from two goals down to draw 2-2 and pick a point off a position of defeat against Nairobi City Stars on Saturday.
Second half goals from Kevin Monyi and Chris Onyango earned the team a point after a first half brace from City Stars captain Antony Kimani.
“We started low because we had been out of competitive action for two weeks and the momentum had been lost. But we came back stronger in the second half, we knew the mistakes we had done in the first half and we put on a good show to fight for a point,”
“The boys showed good character and fighting spirit to come off with a point from the game,” the coach said.
He believes the team will not relent despite dropping points and promised that the fight will be stronger, heading into the second half of the season.
“We are taking one match at a time. This is history and now behind us. We focus on our next match against KCB. We will work to rectify our mistakes. We are still in contention. The desire and the focus is still the same,” the coach added.
