Mururi hails team despite loss to Gor Mahia

Kakamega Homeboyz head coach Mike Mururi says his team played well despite going down 0-1 to champions Gor Mahia in a Kenyan Premier League (KPL) match staged at Mumias Sports Complex on Saturday 11 November.

 Homeboyz went down courtesy of a Jacques Tuyisenge strike just before the interval after Jeremiah Wanjala had missed a 20th-minute penalty kick. Wycliffe Ochomo was also sent off in the first half and Mururi feels things would have been different had they converted the penalty. 

-We played well in a big game, the players gave their all, we won a penalty but we failed to convert. Against a team like Gor Mahia a penalty should be a goal because once you miss you get punished. We had other chances to score but we were not very sharp in front of goal.

Second half 

 -In the second half we had fewer chances considering we were a man down but we still played well contained them and I want to thank the boys for the good performance we now shift focus to our game against Nzoia, he said. 

The win saw Gor complete a double over the Kakamega based side after registering a similar win in the first leg.
