Thika united ready to milk ulinzi after midweek-defeat

Thika United coach Tim Bryett is keen to return to winning ways as his side takes on Ulinzi Stars in a Kenyan Premier League match at Thika Stadium on Sunday.

The milk men woke on their wrong foot on Wednesday as they fell 3-2 at home against visiting Sofapaka in a thrilling encounter with the home side missing glorious opportunities which could have changed the outcome of the game, but the tactician is optimistic the next match will be different.

“Against Sofapaka we created many chances which we did not take. However my boys played well, just that my defense looked shaky and the lapses cost us at long last. We already know where the problem was and we have rectified. But I am happy with the level of commitment by my players, it was good and promising,”

“Ulinzi is a very physical team which tends to play direct football; it will be a difficult match as there will be two different approaches by both teams. However I think we have the edge over them and I am hopeful we will be victorious.

“As stated earlier, our main target this season is finishing among the top three which we are on course to realize. If we maintain the momentum in the second leg, it is crystal clear that we will be among the top teams. The title is a little bit far for this season but who knows, we will take one game at a time.”
