 Seal coach Vincent Nyaberi:           

“We played very well, dominating possession but failed to convert many several we created. Our opponents did not create any real threat except the long passes to the box, which were occasional,” said Nyaberi.

Coach Evans Ogutu for Kibera Black Stars:

“We played well only that we were unlucky but I am impressed with the boys since they really pushed to get a winner but the efforts proved fruitless” Ogutu said.
