Police FC head coach Zdravico Logarusic has hailed his charges for exhibiting great character in their entertaining Afande derby against Ulinzi Stars at Police Sacco Stadium on Friday.
The law enforcers netted two quick-fire goals through Francis Kahata in the 59th minute and Abud Omar in the 66th minute.
“I am satisfied with our performance. We played well and according to instructions. We’ve experienced some highs and lows in our recent matches and I believe this will serve as a huge boost heading to our subsequent encounters,” Logarusic said.
Ulinzi Stars tactician, Anthony Kimani, lauded his charges for putting up a vicious fight, noting that they merely had a bad day in office.
“There are days when things just fall apart no matter how much you try to get them right and today was no different. We live to fight another day,” he said.
At Bukhungu Stadium in Kakamega county, visitors Sofapaka fell 5-0 to Kakamega Homeboyz with Batoto ba Mungu head coach, Ezekiel Akwana, blaming fatigue for the heavy defeat.
Akwana said they traveled on Thursday evening and had less time to prepare for the game that kicked off earlier than expected.
“We traveled yesterday (Thursday) evening and my players had little time to prepare for this match. However, we are satisfied with the results,” said Akwana.
“The game was bad, we played badly. The game was played early compared to the communicated time, hence denying us a chance to train,” said Akwana.
On making various substitutes, he said: “In our team, we depend on all players, not specific ones and even our substitutes came in and played well.”
His opposite, Patrick Odhiambo, was full of praise for his side after recording the biggest win of the season at home.
“We thank God for today’s game and that we did not get any injuries. I did a lot of substitutions to give my players chances to play. I have to thank our players and fans,” said Odhiambo.
Captain Brian Chala bagged a brace with Stephen Opuku, Ambrose Sifuna and Chris Masinza scoring once each.
At Ruaraka grounds, Talanta recorded their second consecutive win, beating Muhoroni Youth 2-0.
