Western Stima head coach Juma Abdallah has attributed their weekend 3-2 defeat at the hands of Kakamega Homeboyz to poor officiating.

Stima were on the brink of a 2-1 win until super sub Allan Wanga scored two late goals to help Homeboyz charge from behind to beat Western Stima 3-2 in an enthralling FKF Premier League match held at the Moi Stadium in Kisumu.

A win would have given new coach Juma Abdallah the perfect start he wished for after taking over the reins on Thursday.

“The officiating wasn’t good at all, that’s why you are seeing all this confrontation. We played well as a team, that is why we were leading.  We implemented what we have been practicing and we worked so well until the last minutes of the game,” he said, adding that, “We have to remain focused and look forward to the next game against Nairobi City Stars hoping for a win because wins build confidence.”

At the same time Homeboyz head coach Nickolas Muyoti praised his team’s ‘never-die’ fighting spirit but called on some improvement on his defence ahead of their match against Zoo Kericho on Wednesday.

“We never stopped to believe even when we were trailing, we knew we had experience on the bench and when we introduced Allan(Wanga) in the game he did what he always does best.

We have to improve on our defence ahead of the coming fixtures and build on the moment for us to get to the level we were last year,” said the youthful tactician.

Muyoti also hailed former Kenyan international Allan Wanga after coming off the bench to score a brace saying fans should expect more from him in the coming matches.

“Every top defender in the league fears Wanga. He hasn’t been playing so much but anytime he gets the chance he delivers, we are expecting more from him in the coming fixtures because we believe with him he will help us get to our best,” Muyoti told Citizen Digital.

After the win HomeBoyz are placed eleventh in the league standings with 14 points while Stima are 17th with seven points
