Gor Mahia coach Dylan Kerr thinks his side played well on Saturday against Leones Vegeterianos but regretted that they could not put away the chances they created.
“I think we really played and pressed well right from the start. We created many chances and it is only a pity that we could not score past two. Overall, we performed really well but the tie is not over. We need to focus on a better second leg,” Kerr said to the Star.
Skipper Harun Shakava thinks the side learned a lot about the Equatoguinean side which they can use in the return leg.
“We didn’t know much about this team but now we have a few ideas on how to tackle them. Winning the first leg with a clean sheet is a huge thing for us. Hopefully we finish the job away and qualify,” said shakava
On another positive note, Kevin Omondi appears to have put aside the personal issues that affected his play at Sofapaka. He now looks focused and sharp as evidenced by his technically brilliant finish off an equally brilliant assist from Francis Kahata.
New signing Ephrem Guikan also had a dream debut. The Ivorian attacker silenced his doubters with a well taken finish in which he picked up the ball and with what was practically first touch, he deftly lost his marker then found the net with a well taken rising shot.
