Nathan Munai in action against Ushuru in April

Gor Mahia had gone seven games without losing or drawing. That run was ended last weekend by a stubborn Kakamega Homeboyz side who held that to a 1-1 draw last weekend. This Sunday Gor Mahia take on Ushuru knowing they must put the train back on the tracks. Any slip-up could see the gap between them and leaders Tusker expand to 7 or 8 points.

Ushuru will not be an easy task as they have been impressive in their last three games, beating Western Stima 3-1, beating Sony Sugar 2-1 and drawing 1-1 with Bandari. Ushuru coach Ken Kenyatta, a former goalkeeper for Transcom FC among other teams is determined to keep the run going.

“Definitely every coach prepares his team for victory and that is what I am also working on here. We want to keep our good record in the second leg intact by giving our best against them. It is just like any other match and we want to try and get positive result”. said Kenyatta to goal.com

Gor Mahia has in the past had a stellar record against Ushuru. That also ended this year. In April, Ushuru battled Gor Mahia to a scoreless draw. Nevertheless, Ushuru has never beaten Gor Mahia. In May, the two sides met in the KPL Top 8. Ushuru once again gave a good account of themselves. Gor Mahia were lucky to beat Ushuru 1-0. However Kenyatta knows that past results count for nothing. When Gor Mahia last played Usuhru, Kogalo were struggling.

“It is going to be a tough match but that does not worry us at all. “History counts for nothing, it changes and that is why we are training. If we know we are going to be defeated, we can as well remain home,” Kenyatta told goal.

For Gor Mahia, coach Ze Maria will need to find a way to keep his players motivated for the full 90 minutes. He has had a week to further sharpen the Kagere-Tuyisenge partnership. Fans will be hoping that the duo will be effective against the taxmen.

    We played KK HBz and not Ushuru. Let’s wish the boys success. For this week the blog was all about discussing the draw. I hope next week we will be discussing a win. All the best tomorrow

    All the BEST TEAM KOGALO

  • Let Kogallo understand that currently, there are no minnows in KPL. I marvelled this afternoon at watching City Stars teach Ulinzi how to play soccer. Tusker is playing every game like a final so expect a win for them tomorrow. This trophy is a two-horse race between Kogallo and brewkenge. Unless we modify our fielding and tactics, expect sour results against Ushuru game.

      @Jambita Tiny, please answer the following question by selecting the most correct response (note that one mark will be deducted for a question left unanswered):

      At which minute of the game will Brewkenge be awarded a penalty against Chemelil F.C., tomorrow?
      A. 75th minute
      B. 80th minute
      C. 83rd minute
      D. 87th minute

      • D 87th minute penalty award, after Owusu shall have squandered his goalscoring chances. Khamati will feign a reckless tackle in the box and the referee will perpetuate the commands from mwendwa by pointing to the spot.

      Guys, Ushuru has this dubious record of NEVER having scored against us. We need to KEEP that record and ensure that we have a goal or two against them. This leg is going to be tougher like never before. The reason is that not one team is just winning and winning as we did last year. Even team experiences a deep in form during the season. I hope the one we had at the beginning of the season is the only one we shall have this season

  • ja Thur GI ji says:

    Someone please what time is our match? 4.15 or 3.00pm?

  • A person says:

    Ushuru coach cried after top 8 defeat. He is coming to try and inflict pain on Kogalo. Let us show them that we are still above them. We wish Kogalo victory.

  • Dan Original says:

    Thank God for the single point. We live to fight another day. This league will be tougher than the previous years. Even the lowest teams i.e. Sofapaka and City Stars are not going down without a fight
