AFC Leopards head coach Anthony Kimani has blamed his team’s lack of concentration after going 2-0 down to Western Stima on Friday.
Leopards came into the tie with 100% record but found the going tough with Stima scoring two late goals in the tie that was hosted at Kasarani Stadium.
Speaking after the game with the club’s media team, Kimani said: “We had a good performance but not the results we expected. We created a lot of chances but were not able to utilize them. We lost concentration in the vital moments of the game and when they punished us, we were not able to pick up at that particular moment of the game.”
The tactician further admitted that his strikers didn’t get the required final ball needed and gave their opponents time to regroup due to some slow decision making.
“There was some confusion with the final balls to the strikers. We expected them to play a compact game and that’s what they gave us. We gave them time to regroup too when we had the ball due to some slow decision making.
“We needed another striker that’s why we removed Fabrice for Hansel who has been doing well in training but I just feel it was one of those days when nothing was working. It was not the result we expected but we have to ensure that we pick ourselves up heading into our next tie,” Kimani added.
Next for Leopards is a tie against Vihiga United.
