Francis Kimanzi feels that Mathare United should take the disappointing loss to Posta Rangers as a lesson as they shift focus to the next match.
Two goals from Kennedy Otieno and Jockins Atudo inflicted Mathare the second defeat of the season but Kimanzi believes that his boys can keep the momentum they showed in the second half. Clifford Alwanga scored the consolation goal for Mathare in a 2-1 encounter at Camp Toyoyo.
"If we can keep the momentum that we saw in the second half and correct some few mistakes. We gave way too many balls. If we can work on that then we can create more and force a good start. You have to be disappointed for not getting the three points but not extending the lead at the top. I think what is important is that the disappointment can be a huge learning lesson for the youngsters,” he told the club website.
The former Harambee Stars tactician feels that should the team had started early on a strong foot, good results would have gone their way.
Late Good Fight
“Good fight but too late. We should have done something better earlier. It was quite a poor start. At this level, you have to force a good start. If you are trailing after 15 minutes you have a long way to go. We let it go from that point. When that happens you have to change a lot and that changes the entire plan,” he regretted.
Mathare will play Wazito in the next league duty.
