As Gor Mahia prepare to resume their 2013 title chase coach Zdvarko Logarusic has chosen to rest the two players who travelled with the national team to Nigeria last weekend. Edwin Lavatsa and David Owino “Jashirati”. The latter is nicknamed after the legendary Tanzanian musician Daniel Owino Misiani who was from Shirati Tanzania and was often referred to as Jashirati.
Owino had a busy time tailing Victor Moses of Nigeria throughput the match last weekend. He performed his duties with distinction and will have earned his rest.
Logarusic indicated that the two are being rested to avoid fatigue and to allow them to recuperate fully before the next game. David and Lavatsa will be rested because they have been away with Harambee stars and it is just fair enough and professional to give the two players time to rest,” he said.
“We want their 100 percent performance on the pitch, they just arrived back into last evening and the match is in the next 48 hours. They will be involved in our weekend match but not against Ulinzi,” Logarusic told supersport.com
Raphael Mungai Kiongera and Moses Odhiambo “Dube” are still out nursinh injuries. Which means that Dan Sserunkuma and Rama Salim will most likely start upfront.
“Some players must step up and take the chance to prove themselves. They have always said they don’t get the chance to play for the team but now this is their chance. Gor Mahia is a big team and each player must show that they are worth wearing the jersey of the team.” told goal.com
