The former Ulinzi Stars tactician says his team had a slow start that cost them. "Well, I think we were unlucky against them (Stima) especially in the second half. We created a number of chances but we did not take them. The first half was bad, we did not click at all, no chances created.

"I can say we were unlucky not to get something from the match. Now we are focusing on our next match where we are going for nothing less than three points," Matano told Goal.

AFC Leopards are 11th on the Kenyan Premier League log with 19 points after playing 17 matches.
