Tusker coach Robert Matano says his side were unfairly bundled out of the Betway Cup by AFC Leopards but believes they now have time to concentrate on winning the league.
The brewers went down 1-0 to Leopards on Wednesday at Ruaraka courtesy of an Isaac Kipyegon’s penalty in the 38th minute.
But Matano insists that penalty should not have been awarded in the first place. “When you watch the highlights, the ball actually hit the face of our player. The referee did not even see it yet he awarded the penalty,” he pointed out.
He added:”My players rarely complain and in this case they did so it was not really a penalty.”
Matano however said now they have time to concentrate on winning the league and believes they will have time to recover before their next match.
“We have been travelling a lot and playing so many matches. With this out of the way, we can now concentrate on winning the league. That is the only thing remaining for us and we want to give it our all and our best.”
“Sometimes we have been playing four matches in a week and even fatigue had started setting in.”
The brewers are perched at the top of the log and will be hoping it stays that way until the end of this month.
