According to Supersport, Gor Mahia chairman Ambrose Rachier is supremely confident that his side will repeat their performance from 2 months ago and beat arch rivals AFC leopards.
“Some people might want to write off K’Ogalo following a few isolated episodes but I can confirm to you that Gor Mahia is still the team to beat and its will not be easy for our arch rivals AFC Leopards,” Rachier told SuperSport.com.
“You can only write us off at your own peril since I am confident we will beat them agin just like it happened in the first leg. The game will be a battle of the titans where the toughest shall emerge victorious.”
“I appeal to our fans to turn out in large numbers, give undivided support to our team and remember that they have always made us proud despite a few hiccups. The players and technical bench are well motivated and I believe come Sunday everybody will be laughing after victory.”
Meanwhile AFC Leopards tactician Jan Koops has also expressed confidence that his team will avenge the loss they suffered during his debut.
“The team is now in high spirits and everybody is geared towards winning the match. All along, finishing has been our major problem but since Mike Barasa and Charles Okwemba joined the team in the second leg, we are now scoring goals.”
“I’m happy with the way my strikers are responding in training sessions and I’m sure if they perfect this during our match against Gor Mahia, we shall definitely come out winners,” said the Dutchman. “The approach will be very simple, force them to make mistakes and capitalize on them. Since we are at home, I know our fans will be expecting a lot from us and the tie will determine our destiny in the league.”
