Coach Simiyu insists the army men have sharpened their scoring touch after going two matches without finding the net and warns Chemelil to ready

Kenya Premier League (KPL) side Ulinzi Stars coach Sammy Simiyu is now confident the team has rediscovered its shooting powers after going two matches in a row without finding the back of the net.

The army men could not score against Gor Mahia in a Top 8 final and Tusker in the league despite dominating proceedings and that has been a source of concern for Simiyu as they prepare to face Chemelil Sugar on Saturday.

“That was a big problem because you find that we defend well and create good chances upfront but the final nail was always not going in. Of course to win matches you can not entirely depend on defending well but mostly on the number of chances you bury behind the net,” Simiyu told the club’s official website.

“We have been putting good efforts towards sharpening our finishing and I can assure that in the match against Chemelil we will be better and sharper.”

“I have talked to our two main strikers Ochomo and Amwoka and I am confident that they have learnt and improved a lot.”

Simiyu termed the Chemelil match as important “because we have to win to reduce the gap between us and the teams above us.”

“We were disappointed not to harvest maximum points against Tusker but all the same the single point we got was good enough. We are going for victory in Chemelil and the boys have promised to deliver.”
