Mathare boss blames poor start for Posta loss

Mathare United head coach Francis Kimanzi feels that a poor start and conceding an early goal is what cost them a win against Posta Rangers.

The League leaders let in two goals in the opening 15 minutes as they took on Posta Rangers at Camp Toyoyo. The side would end up losing to the Mailmen 2-1.


Kimanzi believes allowing Posta to bag two early goals messed up their plan. He admits that he side came up stronger in the final half but it was too late for them to recover.

“Good fight but too late. We should have done something better earlier. It was quite a poor start. At this level you have to force a good start. If you are trailing after 15 minutes you have a long way to go. We let it go from that point. When that happens you have to change a lot and that changes the entire plan,” he was quoted on the Club’s official Portal.

“If we can keep the momentum that we saw in the second half and correct some few mistakes. We gave way too many balls. If we can work on that then we can create more and force a good start,” he added.

The side blew up the chance to open a six point gap on top of the standings and Kimanzi has termed it a disappointment which he hopes his charges will pick lessons from.

“You have to be disappointed for not getting the three points but not extending the lead at the top. I think what is important is that the disappointment can be a huge learning lesson from the youngsters,” he concluded.


Mathare United will be back in action on Saturday for a league clash against Wazito FC.
