Mathare United coach Stanley Okumbi sees lots of improvement after Sofapaka draw

The 'Slum Boys' tactician says the team were a much better side against Batoto Ba Mungu despite letting in a late goal to drop maximum points in a mid-week clash

Mathare United coach Stanley Okumbi says he is impressed with the improvement from his players during the match against Sofapaka on Wednesday.

Okumbi says his team were a much better side than they were in previous contests.

“Tactically we were okay and we played really well. We managed to keep possession but only lost way too many chances."

"Overall, we greatly improved from last weekend match and that is something positive enough for me,” he told

Okumbi now aims at getting his team win the next match, this Sunday against Gor Mahia at the Nyayo National Stadium.

“We have to keep our results consistent and the biggest area of improvement has to be our striking. We create so many chances in our games, but we fail in converting them. If we could convert only a third of the chances we get, I believe we will be better off in the matches to come."

“We do not want to struggle like we did last season and we want to get the earliest points, that will make our work easier in the second leg."
