Nyaudo: Ulinzi Stars needs strikers

After recent struggles that have seen Kenyan Premier League (KPL) side Ulinzi Stars win twice in the last 12 league games, head coach Dunstan Nyaudo has declared that the side needs to invest more on strikers.

The Soldiers' last win in the league came on July 15 when they beat Vihiga United 2-0 in Mumias. Since then they have played four picking just one point. It is evident that the team is struggling upfront as they failed to score in their last four games.

The side has 27 goals and has conceded 23 in 38 matches played so far. Nyaudo believes he has a good team but adds that the club will need to emphasize a lot on the striking force in the next transfer window.

Focus energies

“We have a good team but what the past few matches have shown us is that we seriously need strikers in the team. We need to invest well in that. We have a deficiency in that department and I think that is where we will focus most of our energies when it comes to the transfer.

“We have not scored in four games and for an ambitious team that we are, that is a very big concern. We may concede, but whenever we fail to score, we cannot win a game,” he said.

The Soldiers will be hoping to bounce back as they travel to Awasi for a date with Chemelil Sugar on Saturday 25 August. The Nakuru based side's target will be to extend their dominance over the Millers which has seen them win 11 of the last 17 league meetings
