Akwana: Draw is good enough


AFC Leopards deputy coach Ezekiel Akwana is okay with sharing spoils with Muhoroni Youth as was the case in the Saturday 24 October Kenyan Premier League (KPL) at the Moi Stadium, Kisumu.

Leopards took the lead through Bernard Mangoli but were pegged back by a Wellington Ochieng goal in the second half but Akwana stated in his post match comments that the players did just fine, terming the result as good as a win given the two sides’ differing forms.

He admits his side had a slow start but grew well into the game and should have gotten the winner.

“We were playing away from home against a tricky opponent and for me a draw away is like a win and I’m therefore content with the result.

“We started slowly but settled well by the 25th minute. We pushed hard, created some chances but couldn’t just score the winning goal,” Akwana said.

AFC Leopards has had a troubled season thus far and will be hoping for favorable results in the final weekend of the league to see if they can finish in the top half.
