Bandari head coach Andre Casa Mbungo was left ruing missed chances in the first half in their 2-0 loss against AFC Leopards at the Thika Municipal Stadium on Friday afternoon.

“We blundered at the start. We could have finished this game in the first half. We got scoring opportunities in the first half. The second half they got the two chances, their shots on target some of them were way far, coming from (Collins) Sichenje,” Mbungo said in a post-match interview.

Robert Mudenyu and Peter Thiong’o scored the goals for Ingwe in the second half and the Rwandan tactician admits they were punished by a clinical AFC Leopards side who had a handful of chances but put them to good use.

“We had the game but it is us who are giving away points. But we must keep making amends and rectify the mistakes that we are making. We are good. We were to finish this game in the first half. When they get one chance they score, when we get we miss. It is a game of two halves,” the Bandari head coach said.

Quizzed about the day’s officiating, he said:

“I don’t talk about referees. I am the one who trains the team and so I always take all the blame. I don’t transfer it to the referee. The referee is at work, when he does good or bad, I don’t give it much attention. I try to look at what is bad in us, what is good in us and improve.”

Bandari drops to seventh on 33 points after suffering their sixth loss of the campaign in 23 games and are away to Vihiga United next, Mbungo keen to better their fortunes.
