Gor Mahia coach Williamson slams poor defending

K'Ogalo tactician Williamson blames his charges for conceding 'cheaply' but vows to help side bounce back to winning ways in next league match

After a run of six games without defeat, it was not a result that would have easily been predicted, Kenyan Premier League champions Gor Mahia losing 3-1.

It was not only their fans, who were furious about the result especially coming against their bitter rivals AFC Leopards’, but tactician Bobby Williamson as well. The Scot says they spurned their chances and defended poorly on the other end, but keeps hope that his side will recover.

“It was not a good performance from us today (Sunday). We had our chances and we did not take them, AFC Leopards’ had theirs and they took them. I feel we did not fight enough but I still have hope we can recover,” Williamson told Goal.

“We defended poorly, pulled our line too high and ended up paying for it. I think that is a problem we need to address.

“I know we will bounce back. It is now my duty as a coach and a motivator to get the boys back on their feet. We have a very good crop of players with enthusiasm and good professionalism. This is a slip but we will fight back to get to our best.”
