The 'Slum Boys' are currently rooted bottom of the KPL league table with 12 points after 16 rounds of matches

Mathare United coach Francis Kimanzi is appealing to his players to be more aggressive in front of goal in the coming matches.

The 'Slum Boys' are currently rooted bottom of Kenyan Premier League table with only 12 points after 16 rounds of matches. Mathare United have gone eight games without a win, their last coming on April 30 when they beat former champions, Gor Mahia.

This poor run leaves the former champions staring at relegation but the former Harambee Stars tactician believes that a little composure from the already under pressure players will start yielding results. “We just need to work on the composure in front of the goal and being quicker and aggressive.

"If we perfect that in the next few fixtures then we can turn the tables.”

Mathare United were forced to a third consecutive goalless draw and a sixth by visiting Sony Sugar on Saturday. “Every team wants to be in a place where you enjoy. When you are at the bottom you have psychological and mental fear.

"You tend to overdo things just to turn the results, but when you get positive results everything settles down and mentally you become better,” Kimanzi told the club's official portal.

Kimanzi charges have only won twice after 16 games and have lost eight times.
