United States International University Mashujaa have earmarked areas of improvement ahead of the second leg of the Kenya Hockey Union men's League.
Captain Jamleck Macharia said Mashujaa are back to the drawing board after losing 1-0 to Greensharks in the league match on Sunday— their fourth loss in 10 matches.
The defeat left the students seventh on the log in the 10-team league with 11 points. He said their priority at the moment is to adjust the playing system and rebuild the team.
"It is better to go back to basics because we have made a lot of errors in the 10 matches we have played," Macharia stated.
He added: "The system of play needs to be adjusted and maintained. Transition is another challenge while execution from defense, midfield, and attack are still shaky. There's the need to play a possession-based game that requires one to built from the back."
