Omollo takes positives despite Posta Rangers defeat to Gor Mahia



Posta Rangers head coach Sammy Omollo has stated his team is ready for the Football Kenya Federation Premier League despite going down by a solitary goal to Gor Mahia in a pre-season friendly game. 

The lone goal was scored by former Ulinzi Stars man Samuel Onyango from the penalty spot after Salim Hamisi was punished for handling the ball in the danger zone. It turned out to be the only goal in the game as chances went begging for either side.

“It was unfortunate for us to concede considering the fact that we started on a low,” Omollo told Goal on Monday.

“Defensively we looked solid, same as the midfield department despite some minor mistakes,” Omollo continued.

“However, we had a real problem in the attacking department because we had numerous chances that we failed to take. On another day we could have won the game.

“So as the technical bench, we will have to work on that and rectify them before our first league match.”

“Every player has an equal chance of breaking into the first 11 and I love the competition I am seeing. The competition is stiff and every player is progressing well.
