Goals from Gilbert Fiamenyo and Allan Katerega ensured Leopards recorded a second win in a row and see of Nzoia Sugar in Machakos. AFC Leopards rallied from an early goal at home to Nzoia Sugar to win 2-1 after Elvis Rupia had given the visitors the lead after nine minutes. Fiamenyo scored the equalizer and his second of the season before Katerega scored the winner in the 69th minute.
The Boss, has praised the mental strength of his boys having seen them come from a goal down to win 2-1 against a determined Nzoia Sugar.
While speaking to the media after the Match, Hall explained the difference in the wins against Nakumatt and Nzoia.
“The game today against Nzoia and that against Nakumatt have been two very different games. We won against Nakumatt because we were dominant and had possession. Today we won purely out of hard work”
“We were caught off in the first half and conceded. We fought hard in the 2nd half and I really can’t ask for anything More from my players” He said
On losing Kamura and Fiamenyo to injuries, Hall says his team has enough personnel to fill in.
“I will not focus much on which players we lost to injuries but that tells you we have a very good bench”
“In the 2nd half I really didn’t change formations but personalities. The quality from flanks wasn’t good enough. I brought on Katterega and asked him to play in defense. So then Shikayi moves forward alittle further”
Up next for the Leopards is Chemilil Sugar on 8th of April.
