Isonga coach Eric Nshimiyimana believes his side is making positive strides in their debut season in the Primus League.

Isonga bounced back from a 2-1 defeat in their last league match (against defending champions APR) to hold SC Kiyovu to a 1-all draw at Kigali Regional Stadium on Wednesday.

“I think we played well against Kiyovu. The coordination is finally starting to show and I know that we shall get even better once we play more games,” the former APR coach said.

Isonga skipper Emery Bayisenge put Isonga in front from the spot-kick at the stroke of half time but the green baggies secured a point thanks to a fine header from new recruit Simon Okwi.

The result kept Kiyovu fourth on the league table with 21 points while Isonga jumped out of the relegation zone on goal difference.

The youthful side is on level points (six) with Nyanza, Espoir and AS Kigali.

On Sunday, Isonga will travel to Etincelles.
