AFC Leopards head coach Patrick Aussems is concerned his charges were inconsistent during their 2-1 win over hosts Kakamega Homeboyz on Sunday, sharply dropping their zeal in the second half at the Bukhungu Stadium, Kakamega.

While he appreciates bagging the much needed three points, his second win in a row, the Belgian wants a batter output in their subsequent matches to avoid upsets.

According to the former Simba SC head coach, the second half was more of survival time for Ingwe, allowing Homeboyz to immensely command proceedings scarily.

“We had a tough second half, we did a good job in the first half full of good football but we put ourselves under pressure in the second half which I’m not satisfied with. We need to work on that to make sure when we are leading we keep the possession.

“However, at the end of the day we have bagged three points which is the most important aspect of it,” Aussems said.

His counterpart Nicholas Muyoti on the other hand regretted a slow start, saying Leopards took advantage of it in the opening half scoring two goals, making their catchup job hard much to his chagrin.

“We didn’t start well but improved much in the second half, but that was not enough to change the outcome. Our first half really worked against us, because we lost a lot of possession which gifted Leopards their first goal before hitting us through a set piece for the second. Such mistakes must be avoided if we want to win,” Muyoti offered.

Leopards next play fast rising Nairobi City Stars in Nairobi while Homeboyz have a tough test against defending champions Gor Mahia on Wednesday at home.
