Impala head coach Mitch Ocholla has attributed his side's 32-22 Kenya Cup loss to Homeboyz to lack of discipline. 

The defeat at the Jamhuri ground saw the Sarries lose ground on the Deejays who have opened a up a nine-point lead. They have  solidified the third position on the log on 39 points with Impala fourth on 30. Ocholla said skill errors gifted the Deejays soft tries in the frenetic encounter.

"We gave away soft tries and a team like Homeboyz will always capitalise on opportunities. I also believe our line-out didn't function well and and our skill set in the backline also did not deliver," added Ocholla.
