Extended Nairobi stay helped Chemelil, says Mururi

30 March 2015, 18:40

Nairobi - Chemelil Sugar coach Mike Mururi believes the decision to remain in Nairobi proved decisive following Sunday's 1-0 win over Kenya Commercial Bank.

Prior to this weekend's match, the Millers had contested successive games in the capital, against Gor Mahia and Mathare United, before taking on KCB, who also hail from Nairobi.

David Ojwang's lone strike would eventually prove decisive against the Bankers to give Sugar their first win of the Kenyan Premier League campaign, and Mururi believes their decision to avoid excessive traveling proved key in their preparations.

"I would like to thank the management of our team for helping us extend our stay in Nairobi," said the tactician.

"It really helped us because this week we have played three matches and if we could have gone back to Chemelil we would have gotten fatigued but I thank the management for staying here and acclimatising to Nairobi weather for this match."

A worry for Mururi during the match was the severe wastefulness of Meshack Karani, who missed numerous opportunities to make sure of the points, something the coach said he plans to work on with the forward extensively.

"I have to work on his finishing. He missed so many chances especially when he went round the goalkeeper but couldn't score," the coach concluded.
