Mathare claim first point of the season


Mathare United brushed aside a poor start to the season and earned their first point of the in a hotly-contested rescheduled Round One match against Posta Rangers at Moi Stadium, Kasarani.

Cavin Odongo opened the score line for Posta Rangers in the 39th minute, but Chris Owino equalized for Mathare United in the 65th minute to secure the crucial point.

Mathare United head coach, Boniface Omondi, lauded his charges for displaying great character in the match.

“We’re finally getting our act together, and I’m glad the boys showed a lot of improvement this afternoon,” Omondi said.

“If we keep the kind of spirit we showed in today’s match, we’ll be able to collect more points in our subsequent matches,” he added.

On his part, Posta Rangers boss John Kamau claimed that they squandered another victory by allowing an easy goal that they could have easily defended.

“We must remain focused throughout the game. Our opponents took advantage of our laziness, and we were severely punished “Kamau bemoaned.

“Furthermore, we must maintain our composure in front of the goal and ensure that we capitalize on all of our scoring opportunities. We squandered clear chances in today’s match, just as we did in our previous match against Gor Mahia,” Kamau stated.

The match was round one of the KPL fixtures that were supposed to begin late last year but were postponed after five clubs filed a complaint with the Sports Disputes Tribunal challenging FKF’s decision to reinstate Mathare United to the league.
