NAIROBI,Kenya- Having surrendered their SportPesa Premier League (SPL) title, Tusker FC head coach; George ‘Best’ Nsimbe has shifted his attention towards nailing a top-three finish.
The Brewers (40) in seventh are a massive 20 points adrift of leaders and SPL champions-elect; Gor Mahia FC but battling for a top three place is not beyond them with the team in third at the moment, Kakamega Homeboyz FC only five ahead.
Tusker and fifth-placed Kariobangi Sharks FC (41) battled to a barren draw on Wednesday at the Ruaraka Grounds in Nairobi leaving Nsimbe who took over at the SPL champions at the beginning of the season to fight for scraps.
Speaking to SportPesa News, Nsimbe rued the missed chances that cost them maximum points against Sharks but hailed the improved display from his misfiring side.
“We had many chances to win the match and Humphrey Mieno hit the post. Danson Kago, Lloyd Wahome and Michael Khamati also missed. We were not able to score but if you look at it, this was our best display,” Nsimbe offered.
“Our target remains the top three positions on the log,” he added.
Skipper James Situma echoed his coach’s sentiments pointing out that they have their work cut out in their remaining seven games to salvage some pride.
“We wasted chances but the feeling is mutual. We will improve on our next assignment,” the defender added.
Tusker host relegation threatened Muhoroni Youth FC at the same venue on Sunday.
