Mathare United have put the 2017 struggles behind and managed to register good results that have seen them rise to second position on the log.
The 2008 league champions have managed to get a total of thirty-two points from 19 matches played, two points behind leaders Gor Mahia, who have played five games less. Assistant coach Salim Ali says he cannot focus on the title at this stage because it is still early.
“We want to take one match at a time, not to concentrate on the talks by the people. The league is still young if you ask me, meaning it is early to talk about the title race.
“All I can say is that we are doing our best, aiming at collecting as many points as possible,” Ali told Goal on Tuesday.
The ‘slum boys’ have collected a total of two points in their last two matches after drawing 2-2 and 1-1 against Vihiga United and Thika United respectively.
