Zoo Kericho head coach Sammy Okoth has bemoaned conceding easy goals in their 3-0 defeat to Bandari in a SportPesa Premier League (SPL) match played at KPA Mbaraki Sports Club.
Speaking after the match, Okoth revealed that the final outcome of the game would have been different had they not conceded easy goals in the first half
‘We conceded two easy goals in the first half and hence we were forced to use a lot of energy as we struggled to fight back against the back drop of the hot weather condition which took its toll on ourselves’
The coach also blamed the absence of striker Nicholas Kipkirui who missed the match after accumulating a total of five yellow cards.
‘We missed the sublime skills of Nicholas Kipkirui. Kipkirui is a play maker with who can hold the ball to allow the defence press forward to collect lose balls’
Fred Lewis scored a brace with Noah Abich scoring the third in the Bandari win. Zoo Kericho host Nzoia Sugar at Kericho Green Stadium in their next match on Sunday September 24.
