Naivasha side Bigot FC have lost two of their opening four clashes of the FKF Div 2 league and coach Yusuf Siruma believes has been brought about largely by poor officiating. Speaking after being humbled 4-2 by Kisumu side Y-zone FC, Siruma points out that his team was denied two clear penalties even if his opponents were the better side on the day.
''This is my second loss and it has again been occasioned by poor officiating. I have played four matches and lost two. Today for example we were denied two penalties and the hosts scored an offside goal.
''I went to Nyamira All Stars and got the same treatment when we lost 2-1. Not that I have bad players but it pains when such things happen,'' says the coach who took a 2-0 beating in the tie by the break but scored twice in the second half.
Meanwhile his opposite number Ambrose Otieno who takes charge of the Kisumu outfit has different concerns from the tie. He just wants his team to not conceded anymore. Having had a poor start to the league, Y-zone picked themselves up with an away win and have now made it two in two. Diego, as he is popularly known, wants to win comfortably.
''We are playing well and I can see the cohesion in the team. My only concern now is how we concede cheap goals and that we will look at when we go back to training. It is only fair that we start winning without conceding any goal,'' says the former Palos FC tactician.
Both teams have away fixtures lined up for them after the Kisumu showdown.
Elsewhere out of town, home side- and Div 2 debutants- Bandani FC humbled visitors Kwendo FC 2-0 in a clash staged at the Molasses Grounds near the Kisumu International Airport, having themselves been humbled 3-0 by rival Kisumu side Kisumu City FC, Bandani went into the break leading by a solitary goal and would come back in the second stanza to kill off the tie. It is their second home win.
