Ulinzi Stars assistant coach Benjamin Nyangweso saw his side fall 0 – 1 to hosts Gor Mahia in a fiercely contested Kenyan Premier League (KPL) clash at the Nyayo National Stadium on Wednesday 14 September, in what would be a blow to the side’s title ambitions.
The defeat left Ulinzi Stars eight points behind league leaders Tusker and in third place with just six matches to the end of the season and though Nyangweso admitted it is a setback to their title ambitions, he said they will continue fighting.
The coach is standing in for the ill Robert Matano; he said they will continue pushing hard in the remaining matches with the hope of picking silverware at the end of the season.
“We lost and it is a setback to our ambitions but that does not mean that the ambition is dead. We are a strong team and we will continue fighting to the end of the season if that is what it will take.
“Apart from the loss, I think we played well though Hassan’s red card affected us a little but we are okay and we live to fight another day,” he said.
