Fresh off their midweek tie with Rangers. Gor Mahia will travel to Nakuru to play SoNy Sugar on Sunday in a Kenya premier league match.
They have shown flashes of improvement in the last 3 games. Against Rangers on Wednesday, Kogalo fought like terriers in the second half and it finally paid off with their first goal in 6 games. The attack however still appears to be a problem area. Coach Bobby Ogolla has tried various players at centre forward including Hugo Nzangu, George Midenyo and recently Edwin Lavatsa whom Ogolla praised for his performance on Wednesday. Nevertheless Lavatsa is not a traditional centre forward is better deployed as a winger and support striker to set up the main striker with crosses and passes.
The players appear determined to end their winless streak. Word from Gor Mahia camp suggests that the players have been working tirelessly to address their shortcomings. George Bwana, the club Secretary general has expressed confidence in the technical bench and thinks Its simply a matter of time before the club regains its form.
Also encouraging is the recent form of goalkeeper Wycliff Kasaya who has shown signs of being able to bringing stability between the posts. He is a good leader, is vocal and commands the goal area.
This writer hopes that fans will travel to Afraha stadium to rally behind the team. And this time, fans should keep in mind the fatalities that happened the last time fans travelled to Naivasha. Fans should desist from drinking and no crazy stuff like hanging from car windows.
Meanwhile, rumours surrounding the departure of Collins Okoth “Gattuso” to Sofapaka have been refuted by Sofapaka owner Elly Kalekwa who says he himself was surprised by the rumours.
