AFC Leopards coach explains poor run at The Den

Coach Tom Juma raises concern with the team's strikers after they succumbed to newcomers Kariobangi Sharks in the league

AFC Leopards coach Tom Juma started his reign at the Den with a 2-0 defeat against Kariobangi Sharks on Saturday.

It was a sixth defeat in nine league outings for the twelve times champions, a record that has seen the team fall to the 12th position with 16 points. Juma is however, concerned with the team's form in front of the goal, where clear chances are not converted.

"Sharks took their chances well, we did not. We created several chances, like in the first half we had more than five, unfortunately we could not hit the back of the net and that hurt us in the long run. We played well, possessed and controlled the game, but our major undoing was not scoring. It is something we need to work on before our next match."

AFC Leopards have conceded 15 goals and scored five less, and their next match will be against unpredictable Bandari FC, who defeated defending champions Tusker 1-0 last weekend.
