Gor Mahia’s endurance and fitness will be tested to the limit in August. The club is set to play 10 matches between August 1 and August 29. This includes key matches such as the CAF Confederations cup group stage matches against USM Alger and Rayon Sports, as well as the return leg of the mashemeji derby.
Coach Dylan Kerr described his approach to the marathon schedule.
Playing a match every three days will test Gor Mahia to the limit and avoiding injuries will be a tall order. But coach Kerr is positive.
“I have seen tough months in the league but August seems to be the toughest. This is where mental strength will come into the way we play.” said Kerr to goal.com
“We are going to be stretched but I have confidence in the squad. We just need to stay injury free, remain focused and must be very careful.” he concluded
