Mathare United registered a comfortable 3 – 1 win over relegation threatened Ushuru FC in the Saturday 20 August Kenyan Premier League (KPL) clash staged at the Nyayo National Stadium, drawing praise from head coach Francis Kimanzi.
The victory delivered a second straight win for the 2008 champions, placing their title ambitions well alive as the team stayed third on the log and within touching distance of the league leaders Tusker.
Kimanzi’s side had previously flustered a lot and with the win the coach revealed that the team’s confidence is back and he hopes the streak can be stretched into the remaining matches.
“We did well in the game and I think it was a deserved result; a good one at it because the whole team worked well for it and being the second straight win generates the right motivation for the players.
“Before the game there was a panic mode but now they have relaxed and the mentality is right and it comes at a good time when the league is entering its final stretch. Now we want to focus well and see that we finish strongly,” he said.
