Gor Mahia in crucial encounters

Having won three succesive games and opened a six point gap atop the 2017 Kenya Premier League table, Gor Mahia will taken on Posta Rangers on Wednesday. The match is crucial because Posta Rangers are tied for second place and are strong contenders for the league title.

Gor Mahia will then take on arch rivals AFC Leopards over the weekend. This is another crucial match firstly because of the bragging rights and because there are three crucial points at stake and AFC will be eager to ruin Kogalo’s party.

And coach Kerr already understands the importance of the derby..

“We’ve got two big games this week, Rangers who are third and that’s what we are focusing on today (Tuesday) and we have the Mashemeji Derby on the weekend, which is a monumental fixture for the club.” said Kerr to sportpesa news.

Gor Mahia have been in sensational form since coach Dylan Kerr settled in as coach and he will be eager to continue along those lines. Speaking at Camp Toyoyo, Kerr said that the preparations are on track.

“We have to be prepared. Since I came here after the Everton game, we have been climbing steadily step by step, we are going upwards.

“The elections came and disrupted the momentum and the players had to stay away for safety reasons and afterwards we had to prepare for a game in Kisumu against Muhoroni, which wasn’t the best performance but we got the result,” Kerr stated too sportpesa news.

Despite the distractions caused by the Muguna saga, Kerr says training has been good and the players are eager to prove their worth.

“The training was fantastic, the energy, attitude and winning mentality among the players and the goals scored were special because of it.

“The level of competition is unbelievable, I have a tough job tomorrow to select the team to play against Rangers,” said Kerr.

The first leg match between Kogalo and Posta Rangers ended up in a 1-1 draw. Rangers were in fine form then. Their coach, Sammy Omollo “Pamzo” a former Gor Mahia player and coach wants his team to stay close and is in no mood to do Kogalo any favors.

“We do not want them to open a big gap at the top and looking at how we performed in the first leg, I think we can improve and win to narrow the difference in points between us,” Omollo told Capital Sport ahead of the fixture.

According to Judith Nyangi, the match against Rangers will be played at Kasarani.

  1. Mr. Kerr, do us this favour. Just a favour please: Beat Posta, Ingwe, Ulinzi, Sofapaka, Bandari, Tusker and Nzoia FC. With those teams beaten, the league will be ours to lose.
    Mr. Kerr, please understand that at this point in time, Kenyan teams will face Kogallo with the mentality of draws. They like that. They just can’t help drawing against us. Others like Mathare will score a goal then defend the scoreline. Do not tamper with the winning squad at this crucial time as much as rotation is concerned.

  2. From what i read here and elsewhere there are no “sacred cows anymore”, players have to fight for the jersey, places in the starting line up have to be earned hence the competition in training, results are key. I foresee quality recruitment in future if Ker stays in charge. He definitely has the right attitude and most crucially seems to be keeping the meddling bloated EC,(Gor’s biggest & longest 10 year problem) at bay. His timely stepping into the Muguna saga kept Nwech Sacco/ GMFC Disciplinary Committee aka Holyguns from engaging EC cum agents. This is risky for Ker but good for GMFC. For me Mighty Gor Mahia’s proper league is the CAF group stages. After 4 straight wins one can understand terms like you can’t win every game, a game has 3 results a win, a draw or a loss etc etc which some tried to potray (draws & losses) as the norm rather than exceptions. ALL THE BEST K’OGALO WRAP UP 2017 LEAGUE EARLY. CAF HERE WE COME,EC GET READY NO EXCUSES.

  3. Sir Kerr, indulge my christening you with the term ”Sir” though you have not been officially Knighted by the Queen of England. Since you came on-board i have been smiling endlessly. Your attitude was always right, you respected the clubs legendary status and for that the gods of Gor who hailed from Kanyamwa will ensure your success is very high during your stay. You have given the ”Derby” its due weight not water it down saying nondescript things like Stewart Hall and Dorian Marin of Ingwe used to that meeting Mayienga is just any other league match for it definitely is Not. Goodluck today and keep on the winning streak, lead us to to glory good Sir…#Imorochunya Coaches

  4. This guy, Ker, appears to be well-versed with the Gor Mahia culture. He has demonstrated an amazing grasp and understanding of the teams immediate needs within the short time he has been with the team. We should all accord him the necessary support.
