Ulinzi Stars may be forced to rethink their mid-season transfer policy as the Kenyan Premier League enters the second leg.
The Soldiers had previously announced that they will not go hard in the mid-season window, but the event of the last two league outings may force coach Dunstan Nyaudo to start shopping for more talents.
The former champions suffered a second consecutive defeat last Wednesday in a 3-0 lose to Tusker to add to another defeat by Sofapaka.
Ulinzi have conceded a five-goals in two games and scored only once in the process.
These events are clear signs for Nyaudo of the need to strengthen his squad team in the June transfer window.
“Looking at what is happening now and the shortfalls in the two matches, I think I may just be forced to consider adding a striker and a midfielder to my list of transfer targets. The past two results may see us make a few changes to the planned transfer activity and next week we may see two new players as we try to stabilize,” Nyaudo told the club portal.
Despite sitting four places behind undefeated league leaders Gor Mahia, who have played three matches less, the coach is however confident that the team will catch up
“In terms of the championship, we are not too far because the other results have not opened up a very big gap and in the next match we will come back stronger and hopefully that will place us somewhere,” he added.
The loss to Tusker left Ulinzi fourth on the log with 28 points.
