In the FKF cup final, Gor Mahia will face off with Sofapaka who recently beat Tusker in the semi finals. It will be a repeat of last years final when Kogalo edged Sofapapa 1-0 thanks to a goal by Edwin Lavatsa at the City stadium.
Gor Mahia will be looking for redemption after narrowly loosing the league title to Tusker. It will also be an opportunity for Gor Mahia to earn a ticket to continental football and redeem themselves after the disastrous campaign in 2012.
Coach Zdvarko Logarusic has expressed caution : “Sofapaka played very well against Tusker and we cannot therefore afford to underrate them. I’ve always said they are very dangerous on a good day,” Logarusic said.
“Our preparations for the match are going on well though we have some small injury worries on some of our players, notably Dan Sserenkuma and Solomon Nasio. Hopefully they’ll be well before the match.”
According to a press release by the club website, dangerman Dan Sserunnkuma who suffered a groin injury in the semi final match with AFC Leopards has passed a fitness test and is back in training.
This is good news for the club and its fans as the club will need his goalscoring exploits to crack the solid Sofapaka rear guard which held Gor Mahia scoreless the last time the two teams met in a league match at Kasarani.
Match time and location
The match will be played on Tuesday at 7pm at Nyayo stadium under floodlights. It will be televised live by Supersport.
