Salim Ali 'disappointed than pleased' after Mathare United draw against Bandari 

Mathare United head coach Salim Ali was far from impressed following their barren draw against Bandari FC on Friday evening. 

In an FKF Premier League match staged at Kasarani, Mathare and Bandari settled for a 0-0 draw, and Ali was disappointed after dropping points. 

"We gained a point and that is a positive thing. But I see it more as two points dropped than one gained. Especially with the fact that we were playing at home," said Salim as quoted by the club's official Facebook page. 

"We also failed to score for the first time this season. It’s not a worrying concern but considering the chances we created then we should be talking about three points now."

The Slum Boys' coach hailed goalkeeper ob Ochieng and the backline for yet again keeping another clean sheet after conceding seven in their first two games. 

"Job and his defenders did a good job and another shutout will have them beaming with confidence. We started the season with a completely new backline and it affected our performances in the two losses we have suffered. But they are now slowly gelling together and the trial and error phase is slowly coming to an end," he added. 

The result left Mathare 17th on the log with only four points after four games. They will now put their focus in the next encounter against Ulinzi Stars at Afraha Stadium.
