Gor Mahia skipper Jerry Onyango is full of confidence that his team will win its first silverware of the season on Sunday when they play KPL Top 8 defending Champions Ulinzi Stars at the Moi Sports Centre Kasarani.
Onyango says with the current form, not even a speeding train can derail their quest and thirst for a title.
“All my team mates, the technical bench and the management have been with us and helped us a lot to be where we are. The fans have been with us both in good and in bad times. It is our time to reward them and I have faith that come Sunday, we will be placing the Top 8 title in our cabinet,” Jerim told Michezoafrika.com.
“We are very happy to be in the finals and we have a point to prove that we are also capable of winning this trophy and we could have also won it last year. Every player is focused on that final. We know Ulinzi is a quality side and we expect a tough match. However,we are equally prepared for them,” he adds.
Gor Mahia will go into the match having easily overcome Tusker 4-0 on aggregate in the semi finals. They were awarded a walk over when AFC leopards boycotted their first round match.
Ulinzi on the other hand have been made to struggle by two sugar belt teams in their journey to the final. They won 3-1 on post match penalties against Chemelil Sugar before winning 3-2 on aggregate against Sony in the Semi Finals.
Ulinzi beat the green army 1-0 in their league match in the first leg and Zdravko Logarusic’s charges will be out to extinguish the flames of the first leg loss with a creamy win in the Top 8 Finals.
