“I feel like we dropped two points against Zoo. Yes, we got one but I am not satisfied. My players struggled to cope, they are not used to playing in the rain as compared to Zoo who always do that,” Matano told Goal.

“Now, our main task is to claim maximum points from our remaining two games and finish in the top five by the end of the season.”

“Tusker have young and new players who are gelling. This is a team under transition but as you can see they are catching up well and will be a tough team to beat next season.”
