Bidco head coach Anthony Akhulia has lavished praise on his charges after they secured a crucial 2-1 victory over AFC Leopards at St. Sebastian Park in Murang'a on Sunday.
Shariff Musa fired the victors ahead in the 58th minute before a Leopards defender turned the ball into his net to make it two for the Thika-based side.
Victor Omune's 73rd-minute effort was not enough to salvage the struggling felines from the jaws of another heart-wrenching defeat that leaves them 15th on the log with a paltry 11 points from 14 matches. On the other hand, Bidco scaled to the tenth spot on the log.
Akhulia said they deserved to win the match by a bigger margin having dominated most of the play.
"We were the better side. We won the midfield battle, possessed play for the vast portion of the game and it didn't come as a surprise that we won the match," Akhulia remarked.
"This is a big relief from the lukewarm performances we've displayed in the league in recent days. I'm glad we have once again found our winning touch and, hopefully, we shall be able to register more wins in our coming matches," he added.
Elsewhere, Sofapaka rallied from a goal down to upset Kariobangi Sharks 2-1 at Kenyatta Stadium, Machakos. Humphrey Mieno's last-gasp effort was all Sofapaka needed to secure maximum points.
While celebrating the win, an elated Sofapakaa head coach Ezekiel Akwana warned his charges not to rest on their laurels in the wake of their commendable performance.
"We don't want to experience a situation whereby we celebrate today and then experience many heartbreaks in our next matches," Akwana said.
"There is no time to celebrate. We immediately shift focus to our next game. All in all, I must laud the boys for displaying great character in the match. Coming from a goal down against a good side like Sharks is not a mean achievement," added the gaffer.
