Having won the 2015 Supercup, the 2015 Sportpesa Premier League and the KPL Top 8, Gor Mahia will resume the chase for a perfect domestic season when they take on Administration Police on Friday November 20. The unfancied APs reached the quarter-finals after eliminating Sofapaka whose 2015 season has turned into a nightmare after they started really well and at one point looked like the team that could challenge Gor Mahia. AP won 5-3 on penalties.
The winner of the Gor Mahia AP quarter-final will play Nakumatt who also eliminated SoNy Sugar on penalties. Gor Mahia cannot under-rate the APs considering that they beat Sofapaka. But with coach Frank Nuttall, Kogalo are likely to maintain the focus. The players understand that this is a once in a lifetime chance.
“We want to win everything this year because we are capable of. You never know when we will ever have such an opportunity again and so we want to make use of it as we have it this season,” said Ronald Ngala to goal.com
Michael Olunga who is having a sensational season is the man Gor Mahia will once again count on for goals.
“It has been a good season to me. We won the league unbeaten, had a fine run at the Cecafa Kagame Cup and have already bagged the Top 8 title and looking forward to wrap it up with the GOtv Shield,” said Olunga.
Olunga will be in Praia Cape Verde as he leads the Harambee Stars attack against Cape Verde on Tuesday as he continues what has been a superb season at club and national level.
“I have made a massive strides this year. Apart from scoring goals locally, I have played at a bigger stage which has boosted my confidence and taken my career to another level. I just hope that this continues even in the upcoming season,” he added.
Also in action has this week was the duo of Khalid Aucho and Godfrey Walusimbi who had excellent games as the Uganda Cranes dispatched Togo in Kampala by a score of 3-0.
Luckily for Gor Mahia, there is enough time to recover before the match on Friday.
