Strathmore captain Francis Kariuki remained optimistic saying that they were still hopeful of finishing in the top ten. 

“We are determined to finish in a top ten position but it all depends on what we do in our remaining matches. We played well today, but our finishing was blunt and we hope to work on that ahead of our remaining matches,” Kariuki said. 

Strathmore settled into the match well and controlled the proceedings from the onset.

Onyango who is the top scorer looked determined to add to his tally leading Strathmore’s onslaught as they pushed for their opening goal.

However, relegation bound TUK were not ready to go down without a fight and they guarded their back line well often thwarting the opponent’s effort to breach their territory. [Elizabeth Mburugu]
