Tusker concede Nzoia Sugar defeat

Goal Kenya.
Coach George Nsimbe has explained that Nzoia Sugar were a better side against the league champions on Saturday

Tusker coach George Nsimbe has admitted that his side were completely outplayed by Kenyan Premier League newbies Nzoia Sugar on Satutrday.

The Brewers galloped in five goals leaving Noah Wafula and Shafik Batambuze’s goals to serve as a consolation to a club whose mission is to defend the title they won last season.

“I think they (Nzoia Sugar) deserve it (the victory) because they outplayed us. It is clear that we have to work on set-pieces because four of their five goals were scored through set-pieces. We have to go back to the drawing board to work on the weakness.”
