Ulinzi Stars goalkeeper, Timothy Odhiambo is unimpressed by his record after he failed to keep a clean sheet for a second consecutive match in the 2018 Kenyan Premier League.

Odhiambo returned to Awendo last Sunday to face his former employer, alongside defender Cylus Shitote, but the duo were welcomed with a shock 1-0 defeat thanks to a Clinton Omondi’s 16th-minute goal at the Awendo Green Stadium.

Odhiambo has so far conceded three goals after Ulinzi played a 4-2 scoreline in a win against Zoo FC in the opening match at Afraha Stadium two weeks ago.

“It was a good game from us, I believe, but sometimes there are things we can’t avoid; as a keeper, I always want to keep a clean sheet whenever I go out to the pitch and I wanted it more because I was playing against my former team,” Odhiambo was quoted by the club website.

Odhiambo is now calling for better marking from his defenders and precision upfront as they prepare to face league leaders, Mathare United in the third round of matches next weekend.

“The performance was good but I think we need to improve on marking especially in defence and also converting the chances we create.”

Ulinzi are now seventh on the log, having managed three points from the opening two matches.
