Pamzo: We lost the title in September

Posta Rangers held a lot of promise in the opening stages of the 2017 Kenyan Premier League (KPL) campaign but in the end finished fourth, and head coach Sammy Pamzo Omollo believes his charges lost the plot in the month of September.

Rangers was one of the teams been billed to give Gor Mahia a run of their money early in the season but a run of five winless games; one loss and four draws in September blew their season.

Good Chance

"We had a good chance of bagging this year's title but I think our run in the month of September blew off that chance. Games were coming thick and quick and we had less time to prepare but I don't want to give that as an excuse. We know where we fell short and we should see a different Rangers in the coming season," Omollo said after the fiunal match of the season, against Mathare United, which ended 2 - 2.

The coach who saw his side come from two goals down in the game to force a draw despite being a man down, lauded his charges for a good effort and insisted that his strike force was a major worry not only in the game but the entire season; an area he will be looking to boost heading into next season.

Coming from Behind

"The boys did well coming from a goal down to secure the draw. We have been undone by lack of goals through the season but our defence has been one of the best. We are now looking forward to boost our attack heading into next season to complement our defence," Omollo added.

Rangers managed 51 points in the season, just four below Sofapaka who held on to finish second.
