Coach Baraza now insists they did not deserve to lose in the league match because they created a number of chances. “If you ask me, I think we did not deserve to lose to Sofapaka.

“We created several chances but my strikers could not turn them into goals. Sofapaka created one chance and they scored. That is what we call football. If you don’t take your chances, you will definitely be punished if your opponent gets it right.”

Tusker will next face Ulinzi Stars and are fighting to finish second on the table. “We face Ulinzi Stars and I know it will not be easy. We want to finish second and we will fight for that.”
