Gor Mahia will take on fourth placed Sofapaka on Wednesday in Kisumu. It is the first match since both teams had points deducted after the high court ruling that nullifed results against Nakumatt and Zoo Kericho. Gor Mahia are now on 45 points, still 9 points ahead of Sofapaka. Gor Mahia will be looking to put some distance between them and second placed Kakamega Homeboyz.
“Our targets are the same for each game. We want three points. That requires good preparation and strategic approach and that is what we have done,” said coach Dylan Kerr to the Nation.
Sofapaka will be trying to reboot their title hopes which have stalled in recent matches.
“Playing Gor Mahia in Kisumu will be a tough endeavour. That is the best team in the country right now but we shall give our best,” said Sofapaka’s Ugandan coach Sam Ssimbwa to the Nation.
Last weekend Gor Mahia put on what was perhaps their most spirited performances against defending champions Tusker under difficult rainy conditions. And coach Kerr was impressed with his side.
“I have seen for character for heart for endeavor from my players today because it was a tough game under tough conditions” said Kerr
