After three successive wins, including a 3-0 win over arch rivals AFC Leopards, Gor Mahia will bring their high flying act back to Nyayo stadium as they take on Thika United. Though confidence is running high in the Kogalo camp, coach Ze Maria will not let the team become overconfident.
“Yes, confidence is good on my players, they have self belief which is important at this stage. We have quality in the team and being on top of the table is good, however, we are not getting over confident because it might work against us in the long run. The best thing to do right now is take one match at a time and ensure we get good result.” he said to goal.com
With the match being played at Nyayo stadium, whose playing surface has improved, Kogalo are certain to put their best foot forward. And the players will be rested after going a week without playing.
“Now we have a week before our next match and I think this will be enough time for us to recharge as we work towards another victory.” said Ze Maria.
Last season, Gor Mahia recoded excellent results against Thika United, by winning the first and second legs 2-1. This season, Thika under former Harambee stars ace , Nicholas Muyoti, are struggling and staring at relegation. They are currently at the bottom of the league table.
