Nandwa: The best team lost against Gor Mahia

Thika United coach James Nandwa insists they were the best team against K'Ogalo and should have won on Sunday

Thika United head coach James Nandwa says his team could have won against Gor Mahia ‘if only we were clinical in front of goal.’

A brace from Rwandan striker Jacques Tuyisenge was enough to hand the league champions maximum points and move them to third position on the 16-team Kenyan Premier League table. However, Nandwa says Gor Mahia emerged winners because 'their striker took created two chances with both hands'.

"It was all about taking chances, we did not take ours unfortunately and they did. Their striker was in the right position at the right time and when the chances came he scored the two goals. Actually they were the only two shots on target and they scored, but my charges created more, unfortunately we could not score more,” Nandwa told Goal.

The former Harambee Stars’ coach tipped K’Ogalo to win the title if they continue scoring goals. "They (Gor Mahia), have a good chance of winning the league if they continue scoring. But the league is difficult and I think it is very soon for us to start speculating, who will win or who will be relegated. It is an exciting season full of surprises."
