"If it was any other team, believe me, they could have suffered more goals," Omollo told Goal on Thursday.
"These players are very strong; they came into the match and struggled to get into the match. They had not trained at all and were really under difficult circumstances coming into the game.
"They gave their best against a very good and organised team and their fight on the pitch was evident. They deserve respect."
The Kenyan champions looked shaky at the back and struggled to stop the attacks by their hosts. The Posta Rangers coach has refused to blame his defenders for the goals conceded.
"If you look keenly on the way we conceded the goals, it was from individual mistakes," Omollo continued.
"Those are the kind of mistakes that can only be rectified when the team trains together. With proper guidance before the game, Michael Apudo and Geoffrey Ochieng would have played better, but we did not have that chance.
"So let us encourage the boys, and motivate them. This is a lesson which should be taken in well."
K'Ogalo came into the match without the services of their influential captain Kenneth Muguna, midfielder Bernard Ondiek and Nicholas Kipkirui. The first two were nursing injuries while the former Zoo FC man had family issues.

Pamzo tells goal.com that Gor Mahia players played well despite losing heavily to CR Belouizidad
With Patrick Odhiambo having left, who is the coach for league matches?
CR Belouizdad played a league match on Thursday and won 3-2. They have played 7 competitive league matches in the past 30 days. Gor Mahia have only played two. The cohesion that comes with playing several games as a team is part of whats missing.
