Nairobi - Mathare United coach Francis Kimanzi expressed relief after his team
snapped a five-match winless run with the 1-0 victory over City Stars on
It was Mathare's first win since overcoming Ulinzi Stars 1-0 on 2
July. The third on the table Slum Boys have fallen behind in the title
race with 34 points from 22 games.
With eight rounds remaining in the season, Mathare are seven points behind table topping Tusker FC.
"It was a difficult match with a lot of tension in between because if
you look at the position City Stars are on the log, you could think it
was going to be easy but it wasn't," Kimanzi told Soka.
"It's the best way to end a bad run to bring back confidence and the
fighting spirit as we focus on the next match. To me, it's a scrappy win
because we struggled a lot to make clear cut chances. We had over ten
set pieces in the first half but none hit the target.
"Shooting back to the top three doesn't worry us much because we have
been hanging around there. It doesn't tell a lot if not bring back the
morale in camp. We have been warming up around the top four so it
doesn't worry us much."
