Kakamega Homeboyz head coach Nicholas Muyoti admitted that the first goal scored by KCB before halftime took the winds off their sails.
‘’We were able to contain them for a long period in the first half but our game plan was taken to task when we conceded the first goal then we tried to up the game in the second half but again they scored a second goal late on which took the game off us and now we have to go back and rectify on the mistakes that were made today’’, Muyoti remarked after the match .
