Sofapaka defender Felly Mulumba is irked at the fact that his team failed to keep a clean sheet for the second game in a row when they defeated Mahakama FC in the third round of the President’s Cup at the Moi International Sports Centre (MISC) Kasarani on Saturday 1 September.
The 2010 winners won the game 4 – 2 to advance to the quarter finals but had to hold off the second tier side who piled much pressure towards the end of the game and the Congolese born defender admits that to give a serious challenge they need to tighten at the back.
-I am happy that we moved to the next stage of the tournament. Mahakama was a difficult side, especially towards the end and we were lucky that they missed a late penalty.
-The big problem is that we are finding clean sheets hard to come by, which could be detrimental if we want to mount a serious challenge for titles this season. We need to start shutting out teams, he told futaa.com.
Sofapaka will in the next stage meet AFC Leopards who defeated Congo United in the third round.
