After beating Thika United 5-2 in a scintillating encounter 10 days ago, Gor Mahia have gone on a drawing spree, drawing three straight matches against Chemelil, Mathare and AFC leopards. Kerr blames the glut of fixtures.
“We have been playing three matches in space of six days, and that has affected my players. Fatigue has crept in and it has reflected on the pitch, that is why we have struggled.” said Kerr to goal.com
Kerr also sought to take pressure off the players by saying the poor results were not their fault.
“I will not blame my players at all, it happens at times and it is up to me as a coach to find ways in which I can improve our results.” he continued.
Kerr went on to say that playing against AFC for a chance to play Hull City was illogical since Hull were only interested in playing against Gor Mahia.
“Gor Mahia is the best club in Kenya. By winning the league last year it means we are the ones who should play Hull. I know Hull City want to play Gor Mahia, I have talked to their manager but unfortunately we have to play this game so as to prove that we are the best team.” said Kerr.
Gor Mahia take on Hull at Kasarani on Sunday May 13.
