Gor Mahia will resume their 2018 Kenya Premier League campaign on Wednesday when they take on Wazito FC. Wazito are the hosts and they have opted to hold the match at Kisumu to maximize gate takings.
Gor Mahia are red hot after having won the 2018 Sportpesa Supercup without conceding a goal. The sportpesa Supercup always brings the best out of Gor Mahia. However the team does have a tendency to let their guard down when they are playing local opposition.
On paper, bottom placed Wazito should not bother Kogalo. The last time these two sides met was on April 11. Gor Mahia won 1-0 with a goal from Jacque Tuyisenge. Aside from being the bottom side, Wazito are in bad shape having lost their two games 0-3 to Nzoia United and 0-3 to Nakumatt. And they will have to play without their key player Pistone Mutamba who is said to be leaving the club.
“I think we have had a very good run as a team and the momentum has been great. We are unbeaten so far and it will be a good thing to maintain the same run but I know it will not be easy against Wazito. Though they have not had a good run of late, for them playing against Gor Mahia is like a Cup final,” Kerr said to michezoafrika.com
However Kerr may opt to to rest key players since players like Shakava, Kahata and Kagere have played numerous consecutive games.
“I need to assess the players and get to know from them who is in the right frame physically and mentally to play. I have an idea of the squad that will play but we need to make sure we pit in a good squad with fresh legs,” the coach continued.
