Speaking to Citizen Digital, Alagic lauded his boys for the hard fought 1-0 victory adding that they deserved to win.

“At the end we walked away with very important 3 points, the players showed good character to push for victory in the dying minutes. I’m really proud of them,” he said.

Stars were in action  at the Moi International Sports Centre, Kasarani where they lost 0-1 to visiting Mozambique.

Meanwhile in the NSL, debutants Northern Wanderers once again ended the weekend with no point after suffering another defeat, losing 2-0 at the hands of Modern Coast Rangers.
