Former SC Villa centre forward Bernard Mwalala rued missed chances in his side’s 1-1 draw with Sam Ssimbwa coached Sofapaka in the Kenya Premier League.
Nzoia FC needed a late equaliser to salvage a point against the former Kenyan champions who had taken a lead despite being second best for most parts of the season.
“We have ourselves to blame for not scoring,” Mwalala told Futaa.com. “We created over five clear chances in the first half but we could not convert,” he added.
Sofapaka didn’t create much but ended up picking a point because we failed to utilize the numerous chances we created, this has been the story of our season so far.
Mwalala, whose goals engineered SC Villa’s CECAFA Kagame Cup win in 2005 under Sam Timbe, is delighted with the three week break and he thinks it will help the team in addressing finishing issues.
This break is important, we will go and work on our weak areas especially our finishing and I hope we start well after the break.
The former Kenyan international has been a revelation in coaching and guided the team to promotion from the lower tier division.
