Odera further lambasted the status of the pitch as it could not allow Muhoroni to play “free-flowing football” against the 1994 Africa Cup Winners Cup finalists.
Muhoroni Youth head coach Charles Odera has blamed the status of the Ruaraka Grounds' pitch for their 1-0 loss to Tusker in a league match on Saturday afternoon.
A goal from David Odoyo, who returned to the starting lineup for the first time since his injury, was enough to give the 12-time league champions all the three points at the expense of Muhoroni, who have lost their first league game of the season.

After growing up in Kenya and dazzling with his football skills, the exciting 14-year-old attacking midfielder managed to earn a trial at English club Bristol City.
Speaking to the press after the match, Odera lambasted the status of the pitch as it could not allow his side to play “free-flowing football” against the 1994 Africa Cup Winners Cup finalists.
“The game was good, Tusker were the better side. They got one chance and they capitalised on it,” he said. “ Our boys tried hard but the pitch is unplayable,” he added.

David Odoyo's strike was enough to get Tusker back to winning ways after droping five points in their last two FKFPL games.
“The game could not flow because the pitch was bumpy and our style of football is to play a game that flows, so it was impossible for us to express ourselves the way we wanted against Tusker.”
Odera believes that Tusker were on the right side of divine favor as they deservedly won the match, but sent a stern warning to Matano’s charges that they will not want to face them at their Muhoroni Stadium in Got Alila.

Kenya Police FC Chairman Nyale Munga expresses anger and promises changes following a series of disappointing results, vowing to improve.
“It gave us a hard time but we thank God because the game ended the way it did. Everything has a reason. This was their chance but they will be back home.”
Muhoroni have amassed three points from their opening four games and now sit 13th in the table.
