Cliff Nyakeya's first-half strike was all AFC Leopards needed to beat Posta Rangers 1-0 in an action-packed Kenyan Premier League match at the Nyayo National Stadium on Thursday.
Nyakeya found the back of the net with a rasping shot after pouncing on an enticing pass from Victor Omune.
"That was a brilliant show but we should have celebrated more goals if we were clinical enough in front of goal," Aussems said.
"That notwithstanding, I'm happy with the outcome because it leaves us in a strategic position to fight for the title this season. We only need to keep our focus and ensure we get maximum points in our remaining matches and we shall be there."
Posta Rangers' head coach John Kamau attributed their defeat to a congested fixture but noted that his charges had put up a superb fight.
"Our matches have come so close to each other that there is a possibility our players might be exhausted by now. I believe we can bounce back strongly in our subsequent encounters."
"We are not badly off and our position on the log speaks volumes about the great potential we have this season."
