Despite the fact that they are tight in the fight to stay up, Ushuru FC head coach Ken Kenyatta admits that the point gained in the Sunday 11 September Kenyan Premier League (KPL) game against Tusker was just good enough.
Debutant Ebrima Sanneh got the opening goal of the game to give Ushuru FC the lead before Allan Wanga leveled for Tusker with a calm header and Kenyatta termed the point gained a plus as they look to rise further away from the drop zone.
“It was a tough game but we came out with a draw which is good for us because we had lost five matches now we need to get focused for the next game to ensure that we get three points,” he said.
Sanneh was on his first game of the season, the Gambian having been barred all year due to a lack of work permit and his performance drew Kenyatta’s praise.
“Ebrima gave his best; he won us a penalty and went on to score and I think it is a good start for him. To get a goal on his debut is a plus for us and maybe if he plays two or three matches he is going to be more focused,” he added.
