Posta Rangers coach Sammy ‘Pamzo’ Omollo has lauded his charges for managing to pick a point against Kakamega Homeboyz on Sunday.

Omollo says despite rallying his troops to go for maximum points, a draw was also a fair resylt considering that they were playing away from home. “Getting a point away from home is not a bad result for me (drew 1-1 with Kakamega Homeboyz). I wanted to win against Homeboyz, but they are also a good team.

"We conceded because of a concentration lapse in defense in the final moments. Painful, but this is football. We live to fight another day,” Omollo told KPL’s official website.

His counterpart Mike Mururi blamed the result on losing his key striker Ali Bhai to injury early in the contest. “Our lead striker (Ali Bhai) got injured early in the match, and that meant that we had to change our tactical approach to the game very. That greatly affected our play somehow.

"We had to adjust quickly and with such quality opposition it was not easy. We conceded, but give it to the boys for fighting and not giving up.”
