Strathmore coach points out major undoing after draw to Oilers

After missing out on the chance to bag the first win of the season in Nakuru, Strathmore Leos head coach John Mbai feels that they let themselves down in the clash.

Strathmore who are still in search of the first win in the 2018/19 season were held to a 19-19 draw by Oilers  after they missed a late penalty at the 80th minute.

Mbai cites indiscipline that saw his side pick several a yellow cards and deviating from the game plan as the reason behind their result.

“We let ourselves down in that game. A lot of indiscipline cost us. We played 60 minutes with 14 men and then went off the script when we were leading and we became adventurous even in our own 22. Each time we played to the script we put them under pressure and we managed to get points when we visited their 22,” he said in a post-match interview.

The draw saw Leos rise one place up on the Kenya Cup log. They are now on six points, one above Mean Machine who are placed the bottom on the log.

Their hunt will continue this coming weekend will see them tackle Homeboyz RFC at Jamhuri Grounds in a 4PM kickoff.
