Nairobi - Nairobi City Stars assistant coach Dennis Okoth says the failure to
capitalise on scoring chances is what cost his side the game against
Western Stima at the Nyayo National Stadium on Sunday.
The 1-0 defeat sees City Stars occupying last position on the Kenyan Premier League standings.
The home team also had head coach Richard Pinto red carded halfway through the second stanza.
Having dominated the second half in particular, Okoth was left frustrated at Stars' lack of finishing prowess.
"We should have picked something from this game. We played well but our shortcomings were with the finishing," he told SuperSport.
"We did not do enough to win the game, and despite the many chances
we created in the second half, we leave empty-handed. It is a bit
"We are in a bad position, and we should have even taken a point from
this. That would have been helpful, but now we just have to focus ahead
for the coming matches," he added.
Western Stima head coach Henry Omino admitted the result could have gone the other way.
"It was a very poor game from us; not what I expected, but I am just
thankful that we won, though I would term it a lucky win. Lucky because
we had a very scrappy game and not one I will look at with pride."
