Harambee Stars head coach Paul Put is concerned with a blunt striking force ahead of a must-win match against Tanzania on Monday.

Stars will step back to the pitch in search of a second win, knowing too well that goals may prove vital should Libya beat Zanzibar in the last Group A match of the ongoing Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup.

With Zanzibar having secured a place into the next stage, the Islanders may opt for a second string side against the North Africans. This leaves Put with no option but to win against Kilimanjaro Stars by a bigger margin.

But of great concern to the Belgian is his goal-shy attacking front that has been firing blanks in the last two games. Kenya played her second consecutive goaless draw against Zanzibar having been held by Libya in the second match.

The host, though yet to concede a goal in the tournamnet, need to get back their scoring form that saw them beat Rwanda 2-0 in the opener.

 “You cannot win if you can’t score," Put lamented to Goal after Zanzibar’s draw.

“We have been playing well in the defence and in midfield but the strikers need a bit of luck. We create enough chances but we are not converting the chances."

Kenyan forwards that was led by Nakumatt’s striker, Kepha Aswani in the absence of injured Masoud Juma, wasted several scoring opportunities in Zanzibar’s draw.

Put may need to shuffle his squad once again to come up a with a lethal attacking force capable of killing the game early enough.

Kenya are placed second in the Group with five points, above Libya, Rwanda and Tanzania. Zanzibar are top of the table with seven points.
