Kariobangi Sharks coach William Muluya is a relieved man after seeing his team bounce back to winning ways with a 1-0 victory over visitors Western Stima in the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) clash staged at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos on Wednesday 23 August.

Sharks headed to the game winless in their previous four matches, and needed a confidence boost. That was well delivered by the win, according to Muluya and as his side hit the 30 - point mark, he acknowledged that they had to work for the three points.

Motivation 

"We had not won any of our last four matches, so winning this one is a good motivation for us because we needed the three points. The attackers worked tirelessly, to get the goal since keeping possession was not a problem," he said. 

Despite getting back to winning ways, coach Muluya still has a few key players missing, including defender Bolton Omwenga but the return of Cavin Odongo and Francis Manoah proved a massive boost as they had a telling impact in the game.

"We have Cavin Odongo back in the team after a long lay off, as well as Manoah who has scored our goal. We have a tough match against Sony next and since they have had two wins row, we know it will be tough playing them in Awendo," Muluya added. 

Log

The win propels Sharks to fifth place with 30 points, while Stima drops to the foot of the log having garnered 18 points in 20 matches.
