Gor Mahia cannot take their foot off the pedal

This past weekend, Gor Mahia recorded their fourth win of the season. And it was yet another hard fought win. Other than the first match of the season where Gor Mahia won 3-1 against Kariobangi Sharks, every other win has been by one goal. Even bottom side Zoo Kericho made Gor Mahia work hard for a 1-0 win.

Unlike last season’s first leg where Gor Mahia were entirely dependent on Tuyisenge’s goals, this season the goals have come from diverse sources, most notably Meddie Kagere who is returning to the form we saw in 2015, but also Wendo, Mugiraneza, Tuyisenge and Shakava.

But other teams are also breathing down Gor Mahia’s neck. Sofapaka and Bandari both recorded impressive wins this past weekend and arch rivals AFC Leopards are only two points behind. Surprise package Posta Rangers, who are now under former Gor Mahia coach Sammy Omollo “Pamzo” are in second place thanks to a deserved win over Mathare United.

Coach Ze Maria is under no illusions about the task ahead.

“Our plan is to win as much as we can and we shall keep working hard to achieve this plan. We have to keep winning these games. We have to keep winning matches, whether against SoNy Sugar or the champions Tusker. ” he said after the match.

And every team that plays Gor Mahia, comes out with determination.
“Sony was a tough side, especially because they were playing at home, but my boys really came out well and we won,” said Ze Maria.

Gor Mahia play Tusker next. Though Tusker have had a poor start to their season, one can be certain that they will be determined against Gor Mahia as they try to use that match to give their poor season the jolt it needs.

  1. Agree….especially now that GOTV cup and TOP 8 cup remain officially suspended or cancelled, the league is the only title at stake for all clubs.

    we have to wrap up the league title with 10 games to spare and focus on next year cup group stages as a target.

    Very realistic expectations if you ask me !

  2. Go go go Kogalo go ….. it will be hard but I believe we will take it…….Gini wadhi kawo…..

    What is this Zoo? If your name is like that, then you find your own games to compete in, in the forest…huko ndaaaani ya forest.

  3. I am glad that Ze Maria has finally realized that Kagere is a reliable scorer and is giving him playing time.
