Ulinzi Stars coach Dunstan Nyaudo has termed the Soldiers’ lose against Vihiga United as a ‘shocker’ but promised to bounce back.

Nyaudo, who will next take on KCB, went down 2-0 away in Mumias in the opening match on Sunday, but he wants to make amends in the next outing against Frank Ouna’s side. “That was a shocker but we will bounce back against KCB,” Nyaudo told Goal.com.

The Don, as he’s fondly known, was forced to use a makeshift defense after he lost Omar Mbongi and Bernard Ongoma, just a day before the team took on Vihiga United.

“The result reflected what was on the ground because we were punished for the two mistakes. I had to use a makeshift defense and midfield because I was forced to do without Mbongi who didn’t train because he had malaria while Ongoma had a cut on the face.

“We had prepared well until Friday, but I only had Saturday to make the changes in my defense and midfield”

Nyaudo will also be forced to make do without the services of Mohammed ‘Rio’ Hassan for some time. Rio is currently in India attending to a personal matter.
