AFTER tasting his first loss in the Premier League, Azam Head Coach Denis Lavagne said his charges lacked scoring efficiency as they wasted many scoring opportunities.
The Chamazi-based giants succumbed to a 1-0 loss to Tanzania Prisons at Sokoine Stadium in Mbeya on Friday, a loss ended their four-match unbeaten run.
Jeremiah Juma’s 46th minute goal was enough to give his side a deserved home win taking them to 7 points after five outings which is a good start for Kenyan tactician Patrick Odhiambo at the helm of the club.
However, the Ice Cream makers have a busy schedule in the CAF Confederation Cup as they face Al Akhidar of Libya on Saturday before their second match on October 14th.
“In the first half, we had several scoring chances but we were not efficient enough on the target. And at the start of the second half, we lost concentration thereby conceding a goal.
“For me, I think we deserved to win in the first half but all in all, we concede the defeat and now looking forward to our next game on Monday (tomorrow),” he said.
Up next, Azam host Singida Big Stars at Azam Complex in Dar es Salaam tomorrow for yet another difficult duel for both teams as they have quality players ready to fight for their respective teams.
Under the leadership of Hans Van Pluijm, who has guided them to two wins and two draws, Singida Big Stars seemed to be a real tough encounter.
