Coach Casa Mbungo also called on his players to keep giving their best on the field of play if the team was to post more positive results.

“When you fail to win in two consecutive matches you have to find a way to improving where dots are failing to connect. I’m happy that we finally won. We also created more chances, so players have to keep doing their best in the team to fit the demands. The season is on and have to get going, all players must realise that,” he said.
