Gor Mahia skipper Harun Shakava is certain that the club will put aside its poor results in the last two games and bounce back with a good result when they play Posta Rangers on Friday.
“That was a painful result because we did not deserve to lose. That was a one-off result. We were dominating as usual and then they scored. Thereafter, we were on top of things but then they suddenly scored again completely against the run of play. I expect us to recover from that blip because we know what we want. We want to retain the league.” he said to the Daily Nation
Gor Mahia have played 45 competitive matches this year, which on average is about 15 games more than the 17 other sides competing in the top flight league. There is concern among fans that fatigue is starting to take its toll at a crucial time when Gor Mahia are about to play Rayon Sports and USM Alger in crucial continental matches.
However Shakava is not very concerned.
“The coach has been shuffling the squad and we have been resting in between.”
As Gor Mahia prepare to face Posta Rangers, their coach Sammy Omollo “Pamzo” thinks his side has gained confidence after Bandari exposed the formula for beating Kogalo.
“This is the result that we wanted before facing them, they have at least proved that Gor Mahia is beatable and not otherwise. It is a motivation to my side, I believe we will have a chance to get something from the match, though it will not be that easy. My players have that experience of handling such a game.” he told goal.com
