Gor Mahia’s Scottish coach Frank Nuttall is happy with the 2-0 win over Ushuru that put three more points in Gor Mahia’s bag. But as usual, Nuttall is taking a long term perspective with the full understanding that there is stilla long way to go.
“Three points are always welcome and I am grateful that the players did well to get them which gives us an edge, keeping us at the top of the standings. The performance was really great and encouraging and will motivate us going to the next matches.
Nuttall thinks this was the best match Gor Mahia has played this season.
“So far in the season I think this was our best performance of the season and I am very impressed. We have shown good consistency and I want us to continue that way; our focus now shift to the next game,” he said.
Gor Mahia have indeed come a long way this season. In January, Gor Mahia signed several new players, many of whom dissapointed. The team was playing poorly as coach Nuttall told fans that the team was still gelling. But fans were losing patience as Gor Mahia lost to teams like Bandari and left fans asking how long the team was taking to gel. Clearly Nuttall knew exactly what he was doing. The forwardline combination of Kagere and Olunga is starting to gain an understanding and even the defence is now starting to learn how to play with each other as evidenced by their recent clean sheets.
