Ulinzi Stars are now sixth on the log with four points from three matches

Ulinzi Stars head coach, Dunstan Nyaudo was left impressed by a point picked against Mathare United over the weekend.

Mathare denied Ulinzi their second win of the season following a 0-0 draw at the Afraha Stadium, but a cautious Nyaudo was nonetheless satisfied by the stalemate coming barely a week after losing to Sony Sugar the other weekend.

Ulinzi Stars showed great defensive discipline to hold Mathare United who also saw a goal disallowed early in the first half.

“It was a tight game, just like I expected. Mathare United has very good coaches; some of the best in the country and when playing the team you have to rethink and reorganize. That is why we played very cautiously in the first half, but in the second half we pushed further up and played more attacking football. I’m happy with the mentality we had in the game and the movement,” Nyaudo told the club website.

Mathare draw was the first clean sheet for Ulinzi Stars this season, having conceded three goals in the opening two matches against Zoo FC and Sony Sugar.

“We agreed as a team that we will not go on conceding easy goals and we did well defensively. Going forward, we want to seriously continue working on the attack, so we can score as many goals as possible while at the same time holding on to the defensive discipline we showed.”

Ulinzi Stars are now sixth on the log with four points from three matches.
