Tusker FC 0-0 Vihiga United
Visiting Vihiga United held Tusker FC to a barren draw in an early kick off match played at the Ruaraka Stadium. Vincent Wonder could have given Vihiga the lead in the 2nd minute but he blasted his freekick wide from the edge of the box. They came knocking once again in the 21st minute but Andrew Murunga’s goal was disallowed in the 21st minute.
Timothy Otieno would have given The Brewers the lead just two minutes later but he blasted wide from inside the box. After the breather, Vihiga brought in Charles Okwemba for Victor Ayugi while Tusker brought in Mathew Tayo for Paul Odhiambo. Few minutes later Tusker introduced Mike Khamati in place of Amos Asembeka while the visitors rested Dennis Wafula for Godfrey Airo. The changes had no impact in the final result of the match as it ended 0-0.
“We wasted lots of chances and it is really hard to win a match when you do so. This is an area we really need to improve on. Our defense is doing well but our frontline should improve.” – Sam Timbe, Tusker FC Head Coach
“It was a game of two halves – we dominated the first while the second half belonged to Tusker. I feel we should have at least scored a goal or two in the first half however a draw away from home is a good result, it is a point earned for us.” – Francis Manoah, Vihiga United Head Coach
