On the second-half display, the former Mathare United tactician believes that the lack of proper action by some of his players shown as the game went on.
“Most of them have been out for some time but I think they did well. It’s been long since we played and I think when football returns our players will benefit ahead of our tie next month. It’s a good win and it gives us the needed morale heading into our next assignments,” Kimanzi added.
