Sofapaka FC head coach David Ouma had nothing but praise for his goalkeeper Mathias Kigonya after his heroics ensured both teams shared spoils in their week 25 Kenyan Premier League (KPL) clash held at the Nyayo Stadium on Sunday 25 September.
Ouma believes Kigonya kept his team in the game but was quick to hail his entire team for an outing he feels will have an important impact on their league situation.
“He (Kigonya) was fantastic and kept us in the game. However I believe it was a result of team work that enabled us to get this result. We still have matches coming and the result today is an exact manifestation of our abilities and ours is now to face each coming game as a final,” Ouma remarked.
Gor Mahia strength
Asked about his secret in stopping Gor Mahia, Ouma opined that he knew that the opposition strength lied in attack and it was noble that they prevent them from playing through the middle.
“They have good midfield players who can cause harm to opposition more any angle. We knew we had to stop them from playing in the middle because that’s where their strength lies and I have to commend my boys for playing to instruction,” Ouma continued.
With five games left to save their season, Ouma will hope that his charges can repeat today’s heroics in their next game starting with Sony Sugar FC next.
