Gor Mahia coach Zdvarko Logarusic has cited the rash of injuries the team has suffered for the current spate of bad results. He said the the loss of striker Paul Kiongera and Moses Odhiambo, who did not start the game, and that of Rama Salim who limped off before half-time, played a crucial role in the loss to Ulinzi.
“The pressure was on us. We had a lean squad. Ulinzi were strong and experienced,” Logarusic told the Daily Nation.
On Wednesday , Logarusic opted for Rama Salim and Dan Sserunkuma upfront. However the duo have yet to recover the form which set the league ablaze last season. Rama in particular does not seem to have recovered from his injuries and will probably be rested for the foreseable future.
Logarusic however promised that the team would soon get back on track
“Losing is part of the game. I know it is hard for the fans to take it. They have gone for long without a loss. And I also think this is a wake-up call to all of us in the team that we have to work harder this season. Last season we lost the league by a point. This season we must do better,” he told the Daily Nation.
