Despite opening a two-point gap at the top of the Kenyan Premier League log following a 2-0 win over Kisumu All stars,Tusker head coach Robert Matano heavily criticised his players for below par performance.
Coming into the match, Tusker had humiliated Chemelil Sugar 7-0 last weekend but failed to replicate another a high-scoring result from the numerous scoring chances created.
The match staged at the Ruaraka grounds saw the brewers take the lead in the eighth minute through Jackson Macharia with Timothy Otieno putting the result beyond All Stars reach in the second half.
Matano faulted his players for complacency infront of the goal and their general input which he noted fell short of his expectations.
“I am glad we won but we played poorly.We would have had a won the match with a convincing result. I am not looking at the title as yet. I want to concentrate in maintaining a winning culture,”he said.
As Matano went hard on his players, his Kisumu All Stars counterpart Arthur Apiyo who began his tenure following the sacking Henry Omino admitted that the brewers were stronger than his side.
“I am hardly a day at the club and there was little I could have done to turn around the performance. Most of our players are young and could not match Tusker’s experience. I believe for the time I will be around, I will be able to inject new tactics in the team and help the players improve on the weak areas,”
