Gor Mahia midfielder Anthony Akumu went into the Ulinzi Stars encounter on Wednesday 5 September knowing his team’s job was cut out and after the 1 – 0 win, his pre match anticipation was proven right.
Man of the match
The midfielder put in a strong display and won the man of the match recognition afterwards and speaking to futaa.com after the game, he revealed that the coach had taken his time to prepare the team psychologically for a tough match.
With the win Gor Mahia recorded their 12th unbeaten game, rose to the third spot on 40 points and Akumu feels they might well be strong contenders for the league honours considering most of their remaining matches are at home where they have established an impressive streak.
-We had anticipated a hard game because this was our third meeting with Ulinzi this season and just a few days after the Top 8 win. The coach thus dedicated a lot of time to prepare us psychologically and I am happy that we came out on top.
-If we continue with this form at the moment then we are serious contenders in this campaign also considering most of our remaining games are here (City Stadium) where we have done so well in the recent past, he said.
