Vihiga United players will have a tough case to answer when the team resumes training this week ahead of the third round of the Kenyan Premier League.

These are the words of Coach Edward Manoah who was left incensed after his players dropped two points in a 2-2 draw with Kariobangi Sharks at Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos on Sunday.

“They (players) have a case to answer. According to my philosophy, this kind of performance is unacceptable,” a furious Manoah said in a post-match interview.

The draw means that Vihiga have only picked one point in two games after losing 2-1 to Mathare United in the opening match of the season.

The Vihiga County sponsored side, who are making their debut in the top flight, have twice surrendered the lead, only to drop vital points, a performance that Manoah frowns at considering the league newbies have dominated most the proceedings in both matches.

Andrew Murunga scored a brace for Vihiga United in each half, but his effort was canceled out by Gambian international, Ebrimah Sanneh and Duke Obuya goals in the second half to deny Manoah his first win in the KPL.
