Vipers Sports Club could have settled for a goalless draw against CS Sfaxien in the first leg of the playoff stage of the Total CAF Confederation Cup on Saturday but coach Michael Nam Ouma picked positives from the stalemate.

The coach was impressed with the performance of the team stating there was an improvement from the previous games played.

He however, pointed out lack of effectiveness as the reason why the Venoms did not garner maximum points.

“It was a good game I should say. We created several chances but we only failed to convert them. It is important for us as a team to create chances, if you look back on some games we have played, we have not been good enough going forward but I’m impressed we created them, we only need to be more efficient.”

Impressed: Coach Micheal Nam Ouma addressing the media after the game against CS Sfaxien.

Coach Ouma has the belief that Vipers SC can go into the return leg in Tunis and get a descent result good enough to see the team progress to the next stage.

“We are going into the return leg with optimism and belief. I believe we have enough time between then and now to make sure we address the areas we did not perform well and hope to progress to the next stage.”

Tito Okello, Noah Wafula and skipper Taddeo Lwanga all came close to scoring but were denied by the visitors who proved resilient.

Okello and Lwanga had their headed efforts cleared off the goal line in the second half while Wafula had a glorious opportunity in the first stanza.

The winner on aggregate on aggregate between Vipers SC and CS Sfaxien will qualify for the group stage.
