Muluya decries poor first half show against Mathare
Kariobangi Sharks tactician William Muluya has decried his team’s poor first half show in yesterday’s 2-1 defeat to Mathare United in a league match staged at the Kasarani Stadium.
According to Muluya, lack of concentration and effort from his boys gave Mathare the freedom to dominate the match.
“It was a disappointing first half but after the restart, we worked well because you could see the punch that we exhibited. We lost the match in the first half, had we pushed ourselves well and managed our concentration maybe we could have won it,”he said.
The loss notwithstanding , Muluya was happy with his team selection despite making two substitutions a few minutes after the restart. New signing, Derrick Onyango, from Wazito, came on for John Omondi while Patrick Otieno for the injured Julius Masaba.
“I’m their coach so I believe they worked well and for them to play, it means they have showed effort in training during the week. Above all, its teamwork and sometimes things might not work for you but whoever comes in and plays is important.”
Onyango showed glimpses of what he can offer hitting the post in the 66th minute and Muluya hopes he could a valuable addition to his attack options.
“Sometimes we find ourselves not really getting the best results because of the finishing so it’s an area that we need to work on well but the good thing is that you have seen what Derrick can do for this team and I believe that in the coming matches lots of positives are going to be seen upfront.”
Sharks turn their attention to the FKF Shield this weekend where they aim to bounce back to winning ways.
