Were wants top eight spot



Mathare United hit man Jesse Were says his side is still in Top Eight contention despite their 4-2 defeat to AFC Leopards in Saturday’s Tusker Premier League match, at Mumias Sports Complex.

Mike Baraza opened the scoring for the hosts early in the first half, but his celebrations was cut short by Were’s equaliser to take his tally to nine goals this season.

Leopards’ other goals were netted by Bernard Mang’oli, Paul Were and Charles Okwemba, with Francis Ouma scoring Mathare’s second goal.

Were is hoping that the former TPL champions will bounce back on Saturday, when they lock-horns with their top eight rivals Sony Sugar, in Nairobi.

“Even though we played well, we lost to a better side. We had an average performance and the small errors we committed really cost us,” said Were.

“We withstood the pressure in the first half and contained them, but come second half, it was a different story. We are now meeting SoNy Sugar on Saturday – it’s a tough team and they are also contesting for the top eight tournament, but we will not give up, we will fight to the bitter end.”

Mathare are level on points (38) with seventh-placed Sony and eighth-placed Chemelil Sugar – who host AFC on Saturday.
