The ‘Slum Boys’ dropped more points on Wednesday after they were held to a barren draw by Chemelil Sugar in Thika town

Mathare United assistant coach Salim Ali has urged his strikers to step up and score goals if they are to perform well in 2017 season.

The ‘Slum Boys’ dropped more points on Wednesday after they were held to a barren draw by Chemelil Sugar at Thika Sub County Stadium. Ali, who is stepping in for banned Francis Kimanzi, says Mathare could have won the game had they converted the many chances created and challenged his strikers to up the ante.

“The boys played very well but we really lost a lot of chances today. We could have killed the game in the first half but the strikers seem to be lacking confidence in front of goal. I think a point is better given that we are coming from a big loss but I still believe we could have done better. I still view it as two points lost today,” Salim told club’s website.

Mathare United suffered a 5-1 defeat at the hands of Ulinzi Stars and were looking to recover with a win against the sugar millers. Following the draw, Mathare United have moved up one place to 16th on the log with six points.
