Bandari FC head coach Bernard Mwalala has welcomed the international break saying it will help his team recognize after a disastrous run.
The Dockers have lost their last six matches in all competitions and the poor run has started to raise eyebrows. The latest defeat was the 1-0 loss to Ulinzi Stars at Afraha Stadium in Nakuru on Sunday afternoon.
The league now takes a break due to the international break and Mwalala says it will help his team plan well for the forthcoming assignments.
“The international break has come at the right time. After break we will play two games at home and I think those matches will help us regain our form. The players and Technical bench members understand that we need to end this bad run and we are going to work really hard to turn this round, “he said.
Reflecting on the poor run, Mwalala states that his team has been unlucky in some instances while travel fatigue has played part in the defeats.
“We have been on the road for close to a month playing continental and local matches. It’s true that there’s that element of fatigue because long travels and playing can be draining. Even in these matches that we’ve been losing our performance hasn’t been bad, sometimes a couple of missed chances and lack of luck has seen us lose matches that we should at least have drawn, “he added.
