Tusker end tour on a high
Tusker FC completed their tour of Western Kenya on a high, beating Division One side West Kenya Sugar 3-1 on Sunday.
The premier League champions were on a two-day tour of the region where they took on some of the better second tier outfits.
Ugandan import Andrew Sekayombwa scored twice, with newcomer Edwin Ombassa adding the third to cancel out Johnston Mukhwana’s goal for the home side at the Bukhungu Stadium in Kakamega.
It was a tough game, with the Division One team fighting hard to try match their more illustrious rivals. For the brewers though, it will be taken as a positive step, especially after they also beat Nzoia United 2-1 a day earlier, in Bungoma.
That time it was Moses Arita and Micheal Olunga who got on the scoresheet at Sudi Stadium. Tusker head coach Robert Matano says his unit have yet to hit their stride but they are making progress.
“I am still working on the team and we are on course, but there is nothing perfect in football,” said Matano.
“The positive is that we have won the games we came to play here. “Another positive is that the new players are doing well. We have to work and will continue working hard to ensure we are in good shape for the upcoming assignments.”
The brewers will face AFC Leopards in a friendly match over the coming weekend.
