Gor Mahia will make a return to their spiritual homeground of Kisumu this weekend. It has been a long hiatus as they have played most of their matches this season in the unfriendly confines of Machakos.
This Saturday they take on newly promoted Vihiga United. The kickoff is scheduled fo 3pm on Saturday according to the KPL website.
Coach Kerr will be leading his charges as he looks to put aside the shenanigans within the club where an official is said to have threatened him with the sack. Apparently Kerr was given an ultimatum by a club official which involved sacking.

Matchwise, Kogalo cannot afford to slip up. Any negative result could hand the league lead to their arch rivals. As for Vihiga, they will be all guns blazing since they have yet to win a match and are second from bottom. Gor Mahia need a morale boosting win as they prepare to take on Supersport United of South Africa in the CAF Confederations cup.
