Thika United coach John Kamau has blamed his players for conceding a 'stupid' goal when his team went down to Sofapaka 1-0 at City Stadium on Sunday.
Kamau complained that his side dominated in the match and deserved to get something from this fixture.
"We really played well and had an upper hand in the match but that goal was a 'stupid' one and should not have been allowed by my players. However, it is still too early in the season and we continue to fight on," he told Goal.com.
Kamau however, paid tribute to his young players for holding their opponents in a large part of the match.
His Sofapaka counterpart David Ouma was an extremely delighted man after his side picked all three points on the opening day of competition.
"When you start the league on a positive note by picking all three points, it is a good feeling and motivation going into the rest of the season. There can be no better way to start the season," said Ouma.
He admitted that it was a tricky fixture as his side remained frustrated for huge chunks of the match.
"They were relying mostly on counter-attacks to get back at us and this made it difficult for us to contain them," he added.
