Greensharks to address attack despite win over MSC

In the women's Super League, high-flying MSC recorded their second win of the weekend, beating Multimedia University 2-0.

In Summary

• Greensharks, who have had an indifferent season thus far, returned to winning ways via Benson Mawich's second-minute strike and a double from Man of The Match Adan Talas.

• "Today (Sunday) we did better than in previous matches but we were wasteful in the final third. We have a difficult match next (this) weekend and we must reinvent our attack by converting our chances," Magomere said.

Despite beating minnows Mombasa Sports Club 3-1 in a Kenya Hockey Union men's Premier League match at the City Park Stadium on Sunday, Greensharks coach Leon Magomere insists his attack needs to be clinical. 

Greensharks, who have had an indifferent season thus far, returned to winning ways via Benson Mawich's second-minute strike and a double from Man of The Match Adan Talas.

The lanky attacker grabbed his brace in the 37th and 50th minutes respectively but Magomere was unimpressed by his forwards, who missed numerous chances. 

MSC's James Omondi scored a consolation for the Mariano Emadau-captained side, who could be licking their wounds in the Super League next season should poor performances persist. 

"Today (Sunday) we did better than in previous matches but we were wasteful in the final third. We have a difficult match next (this) weekend and we must reinvent our attack by converting our chances," Magomere said.

"Lack of depth is taking a toll on the team. In our previous match against Butali, we only had 13 players. It's better today since we had 15 players available for selection. Work-related commitments make it impossible for us to have a full house in training. We have a huge negative goal difference and we badly need to bridge the gap."

Emadau, who was crucial to MSC promotion last season presumed that fatigue played a part in the defeat.

"We played well in the first half but ran out of gas in the second. The few chances we had went begging. We just have to push on. Relegation talk right now is far-fetched since, mathematically, we are still in it. Fitness-wise, the team is okay but we need results to survive in this cut-throat league," Emadau said. 

In the women's Super League, high-flying MSC recorded their second win of the weekend, beating Multimedia University 2-0. Alice Jokeyo and Dorah Jokeyo scored for the Coastal side in the 11th and 18th minutes respectively.

On Saturday, MSC, under coach Brenda Wangila came from behind to silence Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT) 2-1 through Mercy Jeptoo's brace.

Meanwhile, Multimedia University were awarded a walkover after Parklands Sports Club failed to turn up for their Super League clash. There was no reason given by Parklands, according to the KHU deputy match and fixtures Secretary Moses Majiwa.
