Batoto ba Mungu have won four games, drawn one and lost two of their last seven matches and will face Nakumatt next

Despite lying fifth on the log with 13 points, 2009 Kenyan Premier League champions Sofapaka FC have been registering mixed results.

Batoto ba Mungu have won four games, drawn one and lost two of their last seven matches. However, the most alarming stats are the number of goals conceded; in those seven matches the team has conceded twelve times, something that coach Sam Ssimbwa is not happy with.

"We play well, but we cannot keep letting in goals at this rate, it has to change and that is not a responsibility of defenders, but the whole team at large. It starts with the strikers, then midfielders and down to the defenders and the goalkeeper.

"As I had put it earlier, this is not netball, it is football and we should learn to stop our opponents from scoring," Ssimbwa told Goal on Thursday.

Sofapaka will be playing Nakumatt this Saturday at Ruaraka, hoping to register maximum points.
