A moment of lapse in concentration cost Kakamega Homeboyz at least a point as they left Nairobi a frustrated lot following a self-inflicted 1-0 defeat to Ushuru FC in their Kenyan Premier League clash at the Nyayo Stadium, Sunday evening.
Mike Mururi’s side were left blaming each other for the defeat which was their third consecutive one as Kennedy Oduor thumped home the winner for Ushuru in the 85th minute.
The goal was somewhat of a gift to Ken Kenyatta’s team as Homeboyz conceded a throw-in in their final third but after play was interrupted for their own player to receive treatment, they switched off hoping for a ‘fair play’ thrown-in from their hosts.
However, Ushuru rightfully played on with Roosevelt Blatty finding an unmarked Oduor on the left who smashed home off the far post to give the Taxman full marks.
Homeboyz players were left agitated at the final whistle as they passed blame on each other. They had their chances in both halves but were wasteful, Mike Khaduli and Andrew Murunga both missing great chances.
A re-energized Ushuru who hauled off the tiring Charles Okwemba for goalscorer Oduor were the better side after the interval and got their reward as they collected their third win of the season that lifts them a spot up into 13th while Homeboyz remain 10th.
