Gor Mahia hope to continue their climb up the KPL table when they play Western Stima at Moi stadium Kisumu on Sunday. The Lakeside venue is proving to be a good hunting ground for Kogalo. Last weekend, Gor Mahia played the best football they have played this season. Fans finally got to see the “Samba Touch” that tactician Ze Maria has been installing.
The Power men could prove to be tough nut to crack. They are currently in 7th place with 18 points, only two behind Gor Mahia. And exactly one year ago, these two teams met at the same venue. That match ended in a 0-0 draw. Gor Mahia won the second leg match 1-0.
Stima’s last match was on May 9 and ended in a 2-2 draw with Mathare. Stima were disappointed at giving up a two goal lead but coach Henry Omino is determined to make amends on Sunday.
“It is eleven against eleven and if we play as we did last weekend, we shall definitely win, that I am sure. We should just be industrious on the pitch and ensure we do not make silly mistakes.” he said to goal.com
Gor Mahia for their part warmed up for their weekend match by beating Jericho All Stars 2-0 at Camp Toyoyo. The goals were scored by Khalid Aucho and Innocent Wafula.
