“We are still not where we need to be. Even though we won, we didn’t play our best game and that is because we have had to change our play due to the numerous injuries we have had.
“Two of the players should be fit by the end of this week including Paul Kiongera, who is such an experienced and valuable player to this team, so I hope for better results in the coming games, if you get what I mean,” Hall remarked.
The win against Muhoroni Youth saw the leopard climb to fifth on the log on ten points; two points below leaders and rivals Gor Mahia.
