Vihiga United head coach Edward Manoah has raised concerns with his leaky defence after beginning life in the 2018 Kenyan Premier League on a sour note soaking four goals in two matches.

Vihiga who earned promotion to the top-tier league after bagging the National Super League title last term surrendered a one-goal lead to fall 2-1 to Mathare United in their league opener, before re-enacting the same script last weekend when their one-goal lead did not hold against Kariobangi Sharks, with the match ending in a 2-2 draw.

He said; “I first thought that it will take time for the midfield and the strikers to get their rhythm but it seems the defence has remained behind,” he said, adding that: “We are going back to the basics because the mistakes we made are unacceptable. We have to work on it.”

At the same time, Manoah believes that earning a point in their season opener is a pointer to the potential the team has.

Andrew Murunga has so far hit the ground running bagging a brace against the Sharks while Gambian striker Ebrimah Sanneh and Duke Obuya were on target for the hosts.

Manoah’s next assignment will be against a dangerous looking Posta Rangers whom they confront this Saturday at home, at the Bukhungu Stadium.
