AFC Leopards head coach Patrick Aussems has said he wants his boys to be more ruthless in front of goal and avoid mistakes that could be costly in the FKF Premier League.

The Belgian tactician’s sentiments come after a hard fought 1-0 win against visiting Ulinzi Stars at Kasarani on Wednesday his first win since appointment lifting them to third on 22 points 10 behind leaders Tusker FC who have played two more matches.

“We had possession, a lot of opportunities and the control of the game but unfortunately we were not efficient on some occasions.

We need to improve on that and be more efficient”, Aussems said.

Aussems has hailed super sub Peter Thiong’o for scoring when needed most in the 77th minute.

“You know now with this pandemic the good thing is that you can make five substitutions and when things are not working you make changes and today it worked to our advantage and may be next week it will not.”

Leopards will travel to Kakamega on Friday to play Kakamega Homeboyz on Sunday at Bukhungu stadium and Aussems hopes to return to Nairobi with maximum points to make it six points in a week.

“You know I want to play every game to win whether it’s at home or away but I want to oblige the other team to adapt to us and not the reverse.

“We will have a good rest tomorrow (Thursday) before we travel on Friday to Kakamega to play and comeback with three points hopefully”.

On the other part, Ulinzi Stars head coach Benjamin Nyangweso blamed his striking force for blowing away open chances.

“That’s football and when you blow away chances then you get punished, they (AFC Leopards) got their chance and converted into a goal.

“We are still in the first leg and every team in the top ten has the ability to lift this season’s title”, said Nyangweso on the title hopes.

Ulinzi Stars remain in seventh place on 17 points after only three wins, eight draws and two losses.

The play highflying Bandari at Afraha Stadium in Nakuru on Sunday.
