Thika United were held to a one all draw by Mathare United in a Kenyan Premier League (KPL) clash staged at Thika Municipal Stadium on Sunday.
Speaking after the game, head coach John Kamau said he was happy with the point, though he admitted a win would have been sweeter. He pointed out that despite missing two points from the clash, his team gave a great output which gives him better hope for the future.
“It was a tough game given the circumstances; we were just coming from a tough Top 8 clash against a very good Chemelil Sugar side which was ahead of us on aggregate and I can’t fault my players for the result. They did really well though normally I would have wished for a win,” said Kamau.
“The tactical approach we gave in the game gives me a lot of hope in the players because we stuck to the plan and gave our all against a good side. We created good openings and all that is okay with me because the point earned will help us out some time later.”
The result took Thika United back on top of the KPL log with 21 points ahead of Sofapaka on goals scored.......Courtesy of SuperSport
