Makori leaps over Jerim
If Gor Mahia fans were hoping for any relief from the recent spell of bad results, it did not come on Saturday as they fell to bottom dwelling club, Bandari by a score of 0-1.
The pitch was waterlogged which made it difficult for both teams. After a goalless first half, Bandari took the lead through Zuberi Hamisi. Gor Mahia came close to scoring via a Kevin Omondi freekick which went inches wide. Moses Odhiambo and Demonde Selenga also came close but could not score. Duncan Owiti “Macheda” replaced Selenga in the 68th minute. Three minutes later he came close to scoring but Bandari survived. The portsmen defended doggedly in the last 10 minutes to deny Kogalo.
Its a lucky thing that Kogalo are safe from the relegation area after the first leg. Their performance in the second leg could easily have seen them drop to the second tier. Missing from the bench was coach Zico whose status is now not known. But standin coach, Camerounian Anaba Awono has not faired any better. Many fans would be curious to find out what his coaching credentials are and where he coached before. . It is becoming apparent that he may not be the answer either. After all he was already the assistant coach under Zico.
Kogalo were playing without key players Collins Okoth who was sick with malaria, Wycliff Ochomo who is suspended and Edwin Lavatsa who has dissapeared mysteriously.
