"I think we played well because we created more chances than our last away match. In the second half we were clearly the better side but it's a big concern if we cannot convert the chances that come our way.

"At this level even one chance is enough to kill a match and it is important that the players realize that, it is not always easy playing away and getting a point is certainly a plus for us."

Despite the null returns on goal, Kimanzi picked some positives from that match notably the immediate impact of his substitutes Harrison Mwendwa, David Owino and Ronald Okoth.
