Sofapaka coach John Baraza has regretted the several chances which the boys missed over the weekend in the game against Chemelil FC.
The champions of the 2009 Kenyan Premier League drew 1-1 with Chemilil who are fighting to come out of the relegation zone this season.
“We created many chances but did not convert and that is disappointing and something we will have to work on. Chemelil are fighting for their lives and played really well,” said Baraza.
“Some of my players probably did not anticipate that level of commitment from them and maybe lacked the will to win under such circumstances. We are unhappy not to have taken three points from a game we expected to win, “said Baraza.
As Chemilil remained in their usual relegation zone, Sofapaka jumped to the 9th position of the league with 36 points from 17 games.
On the other hand, KCB thrashed Western Stima 3-1. Great performance from the first-half goals scorers Simon Abuko, Enock Agwanda and Reagan Otieno. Orumchan Villa netted a consolation goal for Western Stima after 5 minutes of the restart. As a result, they dropped to the seventh position with 30 points.
Kakamega Homeboyz remained as the leaders of the league after they crushed the dramatic Kariobangi Sharks 2-1. The Kakamega based club is looking forward to winning their first league title.
The assist from William Muluya gave Boniface Onyango to launch a perfect start for Kariobangi Sharks. However, Homeboyz’s Kennedy Otieno hit a bullets header which left Brian Bwire rooted to the ground.
With the fight for the league cup, Homeboyz is determined to hold the title for the first time. However, there is also a possibility of losing the title to other potential clubs such as Gor Mahia and Tusker FC because the difference is only a point
